this is a pen and ink drawing of some squash and tomatos that I had laid on a piece of newspaper. We were assigned to make a sort of odd graphic drawing with several sketches of these vegetables as they decayed, reflecting the stages of decay, the shadow and sheen, lighting, etc. I was looking at them with a magnifying glass when I decided to incorporate the glass into the drawing, as well as the newspaper. I was writing "Squash and tomatos, squash and tomatos" when I got bored and started writing other stuff. It's fun to read if you can get close enough. I put the red handled magnifying glass in it just because I like red and it's a little bit of a surprise in the midst of the black and white.
