The artist came up with the idea for this project when he randomly put a pair of googly eyes on a painting of a potato he had just finished.

“She had such an understanding look! I grabbed a tomato painting, and googly eyes from a drawer and Tom was born. Then Nip the turnip. More eyes, more paintings, in a short time I had a room full of ‘Still-Buddies’,” the artist told Bored Panda.

“Never did I hear a discouraging word from them, and unlike some people I’ve known, they are not critical. They never ask if am I going to get a haircut or a ‘real’ job,” Schmid added.
