Tante Marta eating Corn on the Cob - Illustration by Paul Zdepski

Marta's industrial grade dental work ensured that corn was on the menu until the end.

Tante Marta had some crazy steel rimmed teeth that could gnaw through chicken bones and venison jerky. She wouldn't shy away from anything set before her at the dinner table.

Ok- i just took my girls to the midwest on a train to "introduce" them to some distant relatives just like that! (Kinda scared them!)

Those teeth are menacing! The shading on this is fantastic. Love it.
