Canned - For illustration friday

This weeks topic for IF was Canned! Got inspired by the Norwegian poem by André Bjerke that goes:

Runde rare Rulle Rusk
rapset rips på Ibsens busk.
Ibsen kom og skulle plukke
rips til rørte rips på krukke.
Ned i krukken raspet Ibsen
Rulle som en rips blant ripsen.
Rund og rød som ripsen selv
ble han syltet samme kveld.

Basically, this little guy looked like a berry and was picked and canned along with the other berries. :) Poor little fellow!!

Oh,and I know its not actually a CAN, but hey...

Jeg har alltid v�rt irritert p� Ibsen. Han m� jo v�re blind! Han s� ikke en sv�r, r�d krabat nede blandt b�ra.
N�ja, verst for ham selv som skal spise det.
