It was the last night of illustrator class. There was a quiz. I skipped to the last question, which is reproduced verbatim here:
8. Draw an pear and high light it using the gradient mesh tool.
I guess I still had Demuth on the brain from that show at the Whitney I saw last week. Sorry about that, Charlie. And tangential apologies to Billy Billy, too.
Looks like the official fruit of limeduck is in fact an pear. Go figure.
I like your drawing! You might like this program, http://badatsports.com/2008/troikas-newton-virus/
