Look in the kitchen and work with the first fruit or vegetable you spot. It could be in the form of juice, jam, or even canned.

MATERIALS: A nice firm banana (not too ripe), a printed image, sellotape, pin.

METHOD: Since I can't really draw I made a tracing of a photo printed on to plain paper which I then sellotaped to a lovely firm banana and then using a pin I created a pointillist impression of the outline, trusting to the banana's ripening effect up on cellular breakdown... it worked out quite well given my clumsy paws. Given the theme of my challenge I'll let you make your own narrative.

NARRATIVE: I just said, make your own, didn't I?
