|Garden Fresh Grilled Cheese - TDAC Kraft Contest entry|

Ink, watercolor and photoshop
I've been eyeing theydrawandcook.com for about a year now, drooling over the gorgeous ingenious recipe illustrations and telling myself one day I'll do one. When along came the Kraft recipe contest. Which meant I didn't have to come up with a recipe to illustrate - I just had to illustrate 1 of the recipes from the Kraft collection. After all while I'll admit I cook, I'd much rather draw.
I had a lot of fun creating my entry for the TDAC KRAFT Contest. Coming up with the story behind the layout: Bunny Dreams of Garden Fresh Grilled Cheese. Drawing the ingredients and having fun with the hand lettered title. Even putting together all the ink & watercolored elements in Photoshop. I wanted my illo, including the type to be light hearted and springy.
Creating this illo reminded me that I used to do B&W spot art for Food & Wine and Cuisine Magazines. I'd love to get a freelance project illustrating food or doing some organic hand lettering. Food for thought as to new applications for my style.
Keeping my fingers crossed that I'll be one of the 6 winners but I'm not holding my breath. There are 175 illustrated recipe entries. Just take a gander at the mouth watering competition at kraftcontest.
