I’ve had a really rotten day. I took my dog Grendel to the vet for what I thought would just be a routine checkup and shots update and found out that he’s not only got a nasty ear infection, but also a fractured molar. In the corrupt world of animal vet care that translates to a little over $1,4000 and countless future hours of pain and suffering for all. I would know, because about six months after we adopted our three legged dog back in 2012 and acquired our very first credit card debt as newlyweds by moving into our first rental home, we discovered that Grendel had an infected canine tooth that had been cracked up the back (possibly from the same accident that had taken his leg) and had to shell out a similarly obscene amount of money that we didn’t have and of course lots of pain and suffering…so let’s just say that I know this story pretty well by now. But you know, that’s ok, it’s not like my husband and I were already scraping together every last penny to buy our first house this year as we struggle to get our careers out of the corporate retail gutter and onto the right track at last. Oh wait!
But enough of my problems. Here’s some more anthropomorphic dessert foods that I made for work. Maybe they will cheer you up if your day was as rotten as mine. I also got to work on my book this week for a few seconds, but I will share more of that once I get those illustrations scanned.
Let’s review. The Macarons:
Comedy and Tragedy Popsicles:
Mochi Dudes, based off of the food mascots on the package:
Sublime Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich; just the line work:
Ice Cream Cookie Monster with color:
Work in progress group photo:
Joe-Joe’s Toucan, eating a Joe-Joe’s Cookies n’ Cream Ice Cream cone…which is probably not too safe for toucan consumption:
Lemon Meringue Roger Klotz Pie, Chocolate Ganache Cake, and Baby Mini Pie Medley family; just the line work:
Second verse same as the first, only now in color:
Erupting Chocolate Lava Cake:
Another group photo:
A final group photo of them all on the front of the freezer case, joining some of the previous characters and lettering that was on there before:
And that is it for the anthropomorphic dessert foods. Sorry that this just of a rehash from my Instagram and Facebook posts. Since today kinda sucked, I figured that this would still be better than nothing.
