Wow, that decapitated head is sure gruesome! I was eating a McDonald's Sausage Biscuit, but now I think I'm just going to go throw up. Blech.

Nice gore, Phil. Is this you as a child? Sicko.

Very cool Phil. You managed to capture the essence of the two things I fear most: Babies and Zombies.
Grapefruit's o.k. though. I like grapefruit.

Apparently this is a mini Jay Leno ;)

Seriously, this is the creepiest thing I've seen in a while. I'll be having nightmares with this kid in them for a long time.

Love it . I woulda been dissapointed had you not taken this unique approach. Nice rendering. Funny as hell.I guess this is what Pat Benetar sang of when she sang,.."Hell is for children."

Wow, thanks folks. I was sort of scared of posting it, like I'd get invited to leave the Outsider Art Club or something. Your tolerance of depravity is heart warming!

Nope, it's not me. It's just a baby eating a grapefruit. I was trying like hell to think of an idea for this week's theme. I looked deep within my heart and found the velvety blackness of wholesome evil:

My relatives play with babies, pretending it is saying something cute or cheeky. I can't stand that. I though of a baby pretending the most horrible thing I could think of, and it made me smile. It's a happy bonus that it also addressed one of our previous assignments.

Thanks for kind words!

The face looks the way it does because I was attempting to make the cheeks look full, as if they were stuffed with food or brain matter. I tried a few different mouths and none of them looked right until I made the mouth tiny and shoved it way up by the nose. That's why it looks like celebrities with big chins.

Nice Phil! I'm particularly fond of the hair in both babies - a baby big boy do, and the matted kinky zombie locks. Dig the BG pattern too - I've been meaning to steal that sometime...

The attention to render detail within the brain cavity is juicy indeed sir!

I think of that Bg pattern as wicker. I pay a royalty to Pier 1 every time I use it. Just so you know ahead of time if you decide to try it. Thanks Boob!

Good Lord, Phil. That's disgusting and hilarious - I love it. Your choice of rendering style puts it in that uncomfortable gray zone between funny and disturbing, which is exactly where it belongs.

I was wondering how you would handle such a lighthearted topic related to children. You did not disappoint.
