Fruit Hoot. “I have an extensive library of fruit photos I’ve taken for my creative work, but alas my pineapple just didn’t have the texture I wanted so I grabbed this pineapple online. I wanted to invert the pineapple so the texture would look like feathers and the top would make an ideal feathery tail.”
