Submission for Illustration Friday: Aging

*(added this note 8/05/05 due to comment: Academie Sketchbook, Crayola Colored Pencils, Prang Watercolor wash as background... I wouldn't have the slightest idea how to use computer/illustrator :) (I'm a single mom. I buy lots of my supplies during back to school sales... this week is a big sale week here!!! Yea!!! )

I originally thought about doing strawberries because I had just thrown out about 1/2 a carton. Such a waste of goodness.

Bananas were easier to do than fuzzy strawberries.

I am sad to say I also have had more than one banana age to ooze liquid.

I really need to freeze them when they get too ripe so that I can thaw them and make banana bread.

Now if I can just convince my daughter to do that as well.

like this, and the colors really enhance the idea, almost like a stop light, go caution, stop.

What a great idea! Excellent illustration.

Hi aravisarwen, Thank you.

Dawn said...

Thank you, Louise.

Dawn said...

Thanks, Raji.

A rotten banana really does ooze out that brown liquid. :)

And no to the Illustrator... I don't know what that is.

I added a note to my post as well. I guess it is hard to tell what is done on computer and done without one, isn't it.
