Me want FOOD!

Me did food illustrations!

Caplansky’s, Toronto’s premiere Jewish deli wisely hired yours truly to illustrate some of their truly delicious morsels. Here are the tasty results: Donut.Pntg.WEB SandwichPntg.WEB

On top: Beef bacon and maple doughnuts. What?! you say? I know, I agree. Part of the greatness of this assignment was taking my own photographs and then getting to eat the props.  Those doughnuts are ridiculous and delicious.

On the bottom: Smoked meat sammie. Rye. Pickle. So good.

For anyone interested in how they were made, they were painted with gouache on paper. If you are interested in how they taste, go here. 

Watercolour-style Gouache

Here’s a recent image that I am working on for my  final project. It’s not a stand-alone, but part of a larger composition (one that I am not working on now lest in hinder my preparations for Terror Bingo. That’s priorities!).
