Verdura's Character Series

"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... oh no! Wait! That’s another story."

This story takes place in a galaxy much closer and not so long ago. Apparently there is an unknown world where the Vegetables live similar to humans. With their own cultures and languages, customs - just like us."

No-one had heard about these nutritious creatures, until "Verdura" came along. You are invited to learn more about them, but beware! They seem harmless but their behaviour is still unknown."

We asked Lucas how he came up with the amusing idea and where these food illustrations are taking him next.

CA: What inspired you to do the character series?
I have always liked to draw, but I wanted to do something different and new, but at the same time fun and understandable for everyone. Then I thought of pop culture characters like Michael Jackson, Darth Vader, Lady Gaga, etc combined with vegetables to create funny caricatures of them ... but something was missing here, I had to add a twist to this series, so I thought to combine the characters and vegetables in such way that generates a play on words between them. And that's it!
