I usually look at an fruit while its in my salad. Here I asked myself, if they could see, how would they view themselves. They would probably want to defend themselves, be strong. This lead to creation of the "Crocado".
The hardest part was to find a proper crocodile skin, which had the desired 3D effect.
and therefore made it look realistic, I found it on a crocodile toy. All photos where stitched together in photoshop and done in a popup studio in my bedroom.
