Self-germinating

This drawing is typical of the transformative nature of my creative process. The image first popped into my head as a giant drill bit looming over the Earth (a not so subtle reference to the current off-shore drilling debate). Perhaps due to a disconnect between my visual imagination and ability to execute, or the fact that my hands have a mind of their own, the mechanical menace became a more ambiguous organic interchange. The Earth magically changed into a piece of fruit, and the gusher of oil is now an other-worldly plant. There's some sort of circular logic behind it, but don't ask me to explain it.
