Wise and All-seeing

Well, I am thrilled to be able to present my all-seeing potato swami. this is a piece I did for my own entertainment some years ago which has never seen the light of day until now. It just didn't seem to fit into an editorial work portfolio. I think there is probably quite a story here...the other vegetables lacking eyes, they would need to consult someone with more perspective (although perhaps it's unwise of me to talk about perspective, living as I do in an art world with 2 1/2 dimensions).

Fun illustration! I think it would work great with an article with a headline of "The Eyes Have It."

Whoa - I'll be looking at my baked potato more closely before I stab it with a fork now! ;-)

Really nice illo! And thank you for your lovely comment on mine.

Funny illustration. I like your mixture. Perhaps potatoes are wiser than carrots, although ophthalmologists say that carrots cultivate eyes better...

Stop looking at me. It's so funny and very, very clever! I really like this a lot. Mr. Potato Head would be so jealous of our friend here. This is one to add to the collection.

He hasn't yet opened his mouth (you can see it, it is a bit beaky and is why I got the idea in the first place).
