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.
