So far almost everyone has encouraged me to revisit this illustration. Some of you have even said the original (minus the scary baby feet) was just fine as it was.
Here’s the new version. I changed the lattice crust into a solid sheet, hoping to give it more of a blanket feel. I don’t want it to look too bed-like, as it would take away from the pie concept, but I do want the baby to appear to be using the pie as a bed.
I think it’s a lost cause to separate the idea of edible baby from this illustration, however. The child is topped off with whipcream and a cherry, after all.
