La La the mushroom sings and these guys can’t help but dance. I was really proud of how the lines turned out in this one. Portabello mushrooms are a favourite of mine to draw now.

A little trivia for you. Did you know that the button mushroom, crimini mushroom and the portabello mushroom are actually the same mushroom? Yup, they are all the same mushroom known as the common mushroom (Agaricus Bisporus), but at different stages of growth. The portabello mushroom is the mature version of the button mushroom!
