In a forgotten corner...







































...deep at the back of the fridge, lurks a long expired container of yogurt.
This is my take on this week’s Illustration Friday theme “expired”.
(acrylics, coloured pencils, ink on Arches HP paper – 21cm x 27cm)

Brilliant! Eactly how I imagine an off tub of yogurt would look - I love the fungue growing out of it's head.

Your illustration coincided with a monster mould that appeared overnight in our food recycling bin. It was a monster but white in colour and was growing up the sides. I was ordered by she who must be obeyed to throw it out despite my appeals to wait and see what it would develop into. It didn't survive the outdoor cold.

Nice! That's what I was imaging too. Great mushrooms and other growths! Very amusing!

Curious Art said...

Chillingly convincing critter-- the slimy tentacles & shroomy 'do are just great!

How cool!
I'm sure I probably have one of those slurpy, slimy creatures in the back of my fridge too!

Jill said...

My word, that couldn't be more gruesome!! The blue hair and mushrooms are touches I especially like. But every part of this was obviously very well thought out! The blue/yellow color scheme works well too.
