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.
