 I bought a medium sized kabocha at the local Asian food store, as I craved a certain dish from my childhood.

Seeing them reminded me of the illustrations in one of my favourite children's books; its renditions of a kabocha as it grows (the subject of the entire book) remain among the most memorable images from all the books I've read with my kids over the past 3 or 4 years.

These 3 sketches are the result of some experimenting... with new dip pens, new paints, new paper...
