Seed packet.

so! For the final assignment of my illustrating the edible class, we were randomly given a winter vegetable and told to design a seed packet. I got this lovely thing called a celery root. (which I have never eaten but I hear is with good with mashed potatoes) It is not the root of actual celery, but it is related, and you eat the bulbous part.
The top two are sketches from an in class workshop.
If you happen to be interested in food related illustrations, you can find all this as well as the rest of the class right here.

The plate I did in my food class for chocolate peanut butter chess pie. And the sketch because I like it so much better.
Chess pie is a southern dish, hence the southern belle in the middle, the plant on the left is a peanut and the tree on the right is a cocoa tree.

of stolen bugs and other things.

An assignment for my concepts class about the theft of some animals from a local nature center. The thief made off with quite a variety, the most puzzling of which I found to be a Madagascar hissing cockroach. So I figured the guy had a thing for big bugs.
