Illustration Friday-Sprout

This idea came to me and I wanted to execute it quickly- mostly thinking about simple shapes and a limited palette. Poor Mr. Tomato.

Ha! I love it. I like the colour scheme a lot and very expressive - he was certainly happy to be alive! Too bad it didn't last. :-)

In the end aren't we all just a bottle of ketchup. Although, I guess, some become tomato paste and spaghetti sauce.
