I was working on this one when the Illustration Friday website announced this weeks word, which was 'SOAKED", so I thought great; since she's submerged in a tub of water in order to grow her 'hair', which can take quite awhile for an avocado, I imagine she will be soaked enough to justify that word. So good, I kill two birds with one stone. Now, if I can just figure out why she's not affected by the toothpicks and he is then all will be well in my cartoon world. I wonder, is a woman more willing to endure painful processes in order to be more beautiful? Does that make sense?
