Food Glorious Food


I did a boring photo shoot of grocery bags full of food. The good thing was all the exotic foods that were bought. I knew right away I wanted to do a drawing. I selected a few things of interest and went at it. Our food stylist was named Liza. She has a cooking website. Check it out here. Yun and I went to a great restaurant near our apartment the other night and she was in there eating. Guess we went to the right place.

I liked the drawing and the comments (and the fact that somebody yelled about the shallots being there).
Next time the artichoke season is IN, (in winter) I shall take pictures of the things with leaves for you: here the greengrocers arrange them in bouquets for show...

I'd love to see that.

Do you have something against rhubarb?

Jacqueline Hudon said...

Nice sketch, by the way.

Tommy Kane said...

I was just being funny.

Maybe you have to grow up in the south to like rhubarb, but it was something I remember eating on the front porch, just eating it like a stalk of celery. Love that wild and curly leaf on the artichoke.

Someone did make a rhubarb pie for the shoot the second day. I loved it.

this is so fantastic, i love the way you incorporate little notes and musings into your pieces, its so inspiring! a while ago, a friend and i went to a winery, and they had some plants growing out the front, and we were trying to work out what they were as they were so interesting. what "looked something like an artichoke" actually was! http://www.thickblackoutline.com/m6j.JPG
