colored pencils on illustration board
I did this one a while back. I do love a good carrot cake. Not from a box, please. And the cream cheese frosting has to be just right.
Speaking of food, today at the store I was drooling over Cook's Illustrated Magazine. The beautiful work of John Burgoyne graces the back cover every month. This month he drew a whole page of blue cheeses. Even if you don't like blue cheese, you would be tempted to try some after seeing these little illustrations. Go look at his portfolio page, and click on the food/cooking link. Those olives!
Cook's Illustrated also always has a lush still life painting of food on the cover. Its a yummy magazine, all the way around. And their show isn't bad either. I've learned a lot watching America's Test Kitchen. As much of how not to do things as how to do them right. If you like to cook, I highly recommend both (and no one has paid me to say this).
Its Labor Day Weekend here in the US, which means a 3 day weekend for regular working folks. Not so for the rest of us irregular working folks, I'm afraid. My drawing board calls, but that's a good thing. If you're one of the lucky ones who gets to 'get away' for a few days, have fun!
