drawing of a plastic onion

This bizarre object was a gift from my mother. She bought two—one red “onion” and one yellow one—and kept the yellow one for herself. It’s to store your cut onion while keeping it from stinking up the whole fridge.

I have kept this absurd item only so I could draw it for DrawMo! Now I can get rid of it.

    Great sketch! I like how you’ve used color, and the photo of the sketch and object together.

    Thanks! I figured nobody would believe me unless I showed a picture of the actual thing.

    The Art is very nice….ur drawing along with the actual object.
    But I am amazed to know that there is such an object called ‘Onion Saver’.
    The human mind & its inventions!!
    Enjoyed it.
    Regards frm India.

    I… want an onion saver now. That has got to be the coolest practically useless kitchen gadget ever. I just use a little tupperware haha.

    I like the sketch! What kind or markers do you use?

  6. India Amos Says:

    Thanks, Malice Alice! Nice handle.

    I drew this with Faber-Castell’s Pitt Artist Pens, mostly with the brush tips.
