I’m not too sure what the answer to the joke is…perhaps none as they were all rooted to the spot?
The Vege-Tate Gallery — Beginnings…
My idea for a Vege-Tate Gallery grew into full blossom when my husband and I decided to try and plant a vegetable garden around the back of our house.
This was no easy task as we have vegetable guzzling baboons to contend with on a regular basis — so strong fencing and locks were needed for this venture to succeed.
I am happy to report that my actual vegetable patch is doing very well and is starting to bear the fruit of our hard-earned labour. Well, except for the poor runner beans that never made it to the finishing line due to a critter biting them off at the base of the stem, which consequentially led me to create the ‘Has Bean‘ design. You have to work with this!
Whilst planting the seeds of the garden, my mind started pondering all these crazy ideas for a vegetable joke shop with lots of corny but fruity ‘green’ humour.
The designs started to take shape as I sketched out the ideas as they came to me, with a little help from the hubby.
The Next Step
When I had a good 20 designs to work with, I began the digital journey of drawing them onto the computer (yes, using my mouse! I am still using that old archaic rodent until I get my digital pen) and loading them as t-shirt designs.
I am officially launching my new gallery entitled ‘The Vege-Tate Gallery’ — I do hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them.
