Obviously, this is a failed marriage..

Pencil sketch, colored in Photoshop.

I too was stuck on how to execute the Fail theme, and so I went back to my recent nursery rhyme theme and this just popped into my head.

Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater
Had a wife and couldn’t keep her
He put her in a pumpkin shell
and there he kept her very well.

Sounds like a Failed marriage to me!

See the other nursery rhymes in the series….

    Never understood why she didn’t just eat her way out… Who thinks of these things anyway? Was there supposed to be some sexual subtext that I missed?

    Love this picture! I was just composing a blog post about the huge pumpkin my husband is growing in our back yard and was wondering if I could use this picture? (I would definitely attribute it and provide a link to you, of course). Just let me know!
