Vegetables (from the series Meanwhile, Farmers' Market Farmers)
Select your print and framing options:
I drew these mushrooms and vegetables early one morning at the San Francisco Civic Center Farmers' Market as the farmers walked me through their stalls, sharing the names of and details about their produce. These images were originally part of the series Meanwhile, Farmers' Market Farmers, an illustrated documentary depicting the life of farmers, told through drawings and the words of the farmers themselves. It is one of an ongoing series of Meanwhile illustrated documentaries, in which I spent a month with a subculture, getting to know the people, drawing their lives and interviewing them about what they do and why. I form the resulting images and words into a narrative that shares their story. You can see Meanwhile, Farmers' Market Farmers in its entirety here. You can see other Meanwhile documentaries here.
