IF: Alphabets

Convenient to this week's Illustration Friday theme, I had a request to work on an alphabet for babies. I was about to start on the animal version (see alligator below) when my husband reminded me about my baby-veggies from a few months ago. The challenge comes with the letter D: dates, dill, daikon, dragonfruit, durrie. None of these is very visually appealing to me. The daikon comes closest (like a fat white carrot) so we'll see what I do if I keep going with the rest of the letters.
