The anatomy of a mushroom. I love drawing mushrooms,  I love mushrooms in my food, and I love mushrooms puns. There is a fungus among us and it needs a good home!

LOOK. IT’S AN INFOGRAPHIC FOR RUFFS. This coming from the fantastic French blog La costume historique—at least, I think they’re fantastic? I’m mostly looking at the pictures.

There’s also one that matches ruffs with collars, which is great.
