my best friend Melissa sent me a really cool link to Saveur Magazine’s “Recipe Comix”. The magazine asked a bunch of known comic book artists to draw them a recipe. The results are fanfreakintastic! It got me thinking about illustrating my own recipes. I draw a lot, and often I draw food – but I have yet to draw a recipe…hmm…a challenge.
Melissa is a wonderful comic book artist, you should check out her blog http://melissaannemendes.blogspot.com/
I’ve spent the last 6 1/2 years or our friendship admiring her work, and she recently self published her own book called Freddy Stories! Sometimes I forget to look to my friends for inspiration in what I’m doing creatively. Melissa is such a creator and innovator and I think I will look in her direction for inspiration this week (look out for a recipe comic!!)
I started illustrating veggies awhile back. It never really went anywhere, but maybe there is potential in them
and here is some broccoli that I cooked
The recipe for this dish will happen eventually. I made it awhile back to satisfy an american style chinese food craving — it was a huge hit. HUGE.
