Description

 

The ‘horrification’ of a sprouting sweet potato.

 

The first illustration in the Nature Macabre series.

 

A bite in the sweet potato reveals thin bones in the shape of a rib cage. Deep shadows inside the fruit keep the bones illuminated above everything else. Dark graphite shading is offset with a light wash of purple, pink and green coloured pencils, leaving the bones grey.

 

The sprouts shoot out of the sweet potato and persistently push through the bones.

 

The Nature Macabre range is aimed at the mass-hysteria over GMO foods and the alarming rise of food intolerances.

 

The background is bare.
