meat: a recurring nightmare

the vegan voyeur: a tofu in disguise
he's watching you... not eat meat
about meat: a recurring nightmare 
lately, the vegan voyeur has been having very vivid and disturbing dreams about meat processing and packaging plants, the meat department in the supermarket and of sizzling steaks on the grill. he tosses and turns all night long, dragging himself into work half an hour late.  
he wonders: is this a sign that i should start eating meat?

i created this diorama for my very first first friday event. what is first friday? every first friday of the month, many of the art galleries, cafe's and boutiques in town will showcase local artwork, have live local music, wine and hors d'œuvres. it's a town-wide fancy party. i was thrilled when people looked at my crochet, looked at me and said, "i don't get it..." i was equally pleased with all that enjoyed the vegan voyeur this time around. thanks for the support!
