So after finishing numbers & fruits and numbers & candy, it was only a matter of time before I tried my hand at something healthier–vegetables!
Once again, I spent a long time deliberating exactly which veggies would make the cut (teehee.) Potatoes and onions fell by the wayside; the former were not visually stunning (although they’re one of my favorite foods) and my drawings of the latter were barely decipherable. Summer squash was a close second to pumpkins, but pumpkins won out for being more easily identifiable. I fussed over the cabbages in row 5 for a long time, and I’m still not certain they won’t be mistaken for Brussels sprouts, but hey, what can you do? And yes, I realize tomatoes are technically a fruit, not a veggie. Just play along. There’s a reason I’m not a scientific illustrator. 😉
You’ll soon find this poster in the Calobee Doodles shop!
My first idea for the numbers & fruits counting poster was intended to be numbers & candy, but somewhere along the line I decided fruits would be better suited to the design. The other night I thought I’d try going back to the original idea, and this came together quickly. This is the poster for those of you who’d prefer something sweet but a little more “refined.” 😉
Soon to be added to the shop: this sweet numbers and fruits poster!
It took me longer than you’d think to decide which fruits would stay and which ones wouldn’t. I wanted a good color balance and a variety of shapes and sizes. Fruits that I doodled but did not make the cut: starfruit, grapefruit, pomegranate, raspberries and coconut!
