Toby retrospective!

Looking through a cd of old images I came accross this, which Toby made when he was 9. (click to enlarge and see in more detail)
He created quite alot of 'arrangements' to photograph on our kitchen floor at that time and I think they are fab! Look at the way he has fanned out the spring onions and lined up the almonds alongside, and also all the little coffee beans in a stripe along the cucumber. That reminds me, I saw some lovely produce pics on Tara's blog recently, have a look: http://www.tlcillustration.blogspot.com/

Lovely, very autumnal/harvest festivally - reminds me of that artist/old master who did the vegtable portraits, can't remember his name now.

If Toby doesn't end up as some hotshot designer, then there is no justice! To have created that at nine years old - wow.

This looks fantastic Toby. Like the way you kept colours together, like the satsumas and carrots. A rainbow of fruit!
