Illustration Friday - Roots

I was stumped by this week's topic ... sketched a couple of trees with roots aplenty but they just didn't seem right. So I took a break and went to the kitchen to hunt for some chomp. And there it was, inspiration in the form of a piece of ginger. It looked like a figure with limbs and quite full of action. With root vegetables in mind, here's my take for this week - the rock band THE ROOTZ! Rock on!

This is great. That ginger root really does look like some kind of little action figure!

You rascal! You always come up with something really cute and funny for these things! The concept and the characters are brilliant...not to mention the technique! So my question is...do The Rootz play roots rock, or are they into another kind of music?

Outstanding job - great humor and character development - and likely one of the most unique offerings this week!

Reminds me of a fun sort of After School Special - "eat your anthropomorphic vegetables!" I'll look for the 45!

Neat stuff!
