This was something I did quite a while ago. BUT, because it was a secret, I couldn’t share it. This was made for a lovely friend of mine, and her new baby girl Charlotte.
The inspiration for this illustration came from the common practice of comparing the fetus size to fruits and vegetables, for the mother to be aware of the size of their baby.
So the idea here, was to play with the fruits and their sizes in relation to the number of weeks. SO we spiral from smallest (poppy seed, at 3 weeks) and keep working our way up to coconut (36 weeks). All of this combined = 1 watermelon, that reflects the size of the baby close to the end of the pregnancy.
Hope you enjoy iiiiit!
