Potato harvest like it was done from about 1850 to 1950. Horse does not approve.

I had done the lineart for this back in August last year but then I decided not to finish it. I guess cause it has no actual message or meaning, more like a personal piece. I've finished it now, but still, I'm not even sure what it means to me or what anyone else sees in it.. Anyway, I'm posting this to my gallery here since it's technically one of my best drawings so far.

(Random fact: In my childhood I had to help in potato harvest. The machine was a bit newer and not horse drawn, but you still had to collect the potatoes from the ground. I'm glad we finally got something more modern several years ago xD)

What is the problem with the job? There is no dental plan? rotating rest days? No breaks for coffee? Is it instant coffee? That last one is serious.

I agree, the last one is serious.. Ban all the coffee, tea for everyone! D:

Very nice one :D Now I feel a little awkward to admit that I had to work with a thingy like the one in the picture not so long ago. It was just more rusted :XD:

Just call it retro or old school, that's popular nowadays right? ;P
(Though this was part of the reason why I wasn't sure if I should publish this pic >.<)

At least he's doing it on "Earth", with lots of room. He could be doing it in a tiny indoor habitat or a cave on Mars.

I bet they'd find better ways to harvest there xD

Sort of the same, except they don't (or "he doesn't", if we're talking about the original book/film) have any proper gardening tools on Mars. NASA never expected Mark Watney or any of the others on Ares III to need to grow food, much less inside the Hab. modernfarmer.com/2015/10/can-y…

That's the look on my face towards the end of the work-week. That unicorn ran out of ckufs to give a long time ago, it seems.
