Pickledog, and I are so thrilled to have been selected as the illustration of the week! I know it's random but it still feels like winning the illustration lottery. We want to thank everyone for all of the wonderful comments. Thank you so much : )
It is difficult starting out, especially when you don't have much experience. Tom Mayto's resume was impressive, but Farmer Higgins Catsup was looking for a tomato with a bit more experience, and Tom was still much too "green."
That's Higgins Catsup.. "made with only the freshest red tomatoes"
note: Tom Mayto, and Farmer Higgins are fictional characters. Any resemblance to real tomatoes living, or bottled is purely coincidental.
