Cabbage patch peloton.



















Here we find our garden variety duo out for some fresh air, and a little friendly competition.
My take on this week’s Illustration Friday theme “garden”.

Such a great illustration. Great characters. I love the carrots int he rabbits back pocket. Always need a bit of nutrition on those bicycle races. You did a wonderful job on the bicycles.

Hi, this makes me laugh. I am appreciating your nice touches with the sponsor logos on their uniforms (rabbit hutch, slo-ride, etc.) PLUS the ones on their bicycles. Makes you want to explore the picture that much longer. The look of determination on the turtle is good and the way his neck is stretching so his nose ends up over the handlebars makes me think he wants the victory more than the hare. Good composition. Nicely done!

Nice take on an old story, for sure! The carrots crack me up. I like how the bold lines stand the characters out from the background.

I'm grateful to the tortoise... the longer he can distract the hare from my garden, the better! Great take on the topic.
