Literally Anyone Can Make Comics: The Anything Vegetable

Katie Cook put out the call for guardian plant spirit designs for her excellent webcomic Nothing Special, and this was my contribution. 

Eggplants are such utility players; whether you need a vegetable or a meat, they can step in to do the job. I like that kind of versatility and willingness to help.

Plus, eggplants are funny, man.  I can't explain why, they just are.

Also, their Euro name, aubergine, is just such an awesome word.

Also also, of course it's wearing glasses.  I imagine that any spirit surrounding my life has vision just as bad as mine.

Family Portrait

We lacked a decent family portrait, so I figured I'd create one in my preferred medium.  So clockwise from the far left that's me, the kid, the wife, and the dog.  I think I did a pretty decent job capturing our likenesses if I do say so myself, but I'm still not 100% satisfied with the wife's hair here... her hair is more of an darker, auburny shade of red.
