Hello everyone. My favorite band, KoRn, is doing a cover art competition for their single Love and Meth. This could be a dream come true for me, but I need your help. I need votes.
The click through link takes you into my submission. But you can also find it Here.
This would really mean a lot to me, and I thank each and every one of you.
Cheese steaks aren’t exactly holiday food but they do make me think of family— In my house growing up, they were an easy favorite for lazy Sunday afternoons and my mom taught me this plate & pan trick.
I had so much fun playing with the layout for this! And I tried to pick colors reminiscent of the New Jersey Boardwalk—another place besides Philly known for their cheese steaks.
This project made me hungry. I drew, now I will cook…
Snails! Just what everyone wants to cook!
It was my parents 24th anniversary a few weeks ago and made them escargot since they love snails. They used to gross me out but seriously, they taste amazing. Also, snails are cute and I wanted an excuse to draw them.
I chose to illustrate a recipe I tried in the summer on this blog for Matcha (Green Tea) Cupcakes. I love baking sweets that use unconventional ingredients and flavors, plus I just love the taste and color of green tea in desserts, like ice cream, cookies, frappuccinos, etc. This is definitely one of my favorite cupcake recipes that I’ve attempted so far. The texture and color of the cake itself is just wonderful!
As far as creating the image, I didn’t really want to just draw a green cupcake partially because this was my final portfolio project and partially because I was inspired by the submissions on They Draw & Cook that were less literal. I thought of Japan because of their tea ceremony, and I started to reference Japanese paintings and prints for more ideas. As an artist I am also drawn to story-telling and love as a theme, so the idea I came up with for this illustration is that the girl on the left is sending a package of cupcakes to her samurai out in the field. After all, the best part about baking is sharing with others!
So every year, my Aunt Brenda makes this magical pie that tastes like chocolate heaven and pretty much solves all your problems. I’m obsessed with it. I’ve been meaning to get the recipe for a long time, and it wasn’t until I asked my mom about it to do this illustration that I realized it’s basically the easiest recipe ever. I’ve been wasting so much of my life not making this for myself whenever I want!
