This foodie illustration job is taking longer than it was supposed to, but don't they all. In between drawing and painting food, and thinking about drawing and painting food, I take walks.
I've begun a little illustrated walk journal, for the fun of it in itself, but also to get in the spirit for my upcoming stay in Brittany. I'll be painting there, but I want to keep a small daily sketch journal, too, with text incorporated with the images on each page. (I have already posted some pages from this journal, below.) My sketchbooks in the past have consisted largely of sketches, with very little, if any, text. I have used this blog to tell the stories that accompany those sketches and I will continue to do that. But it'll be fun to make little illustrated travel journals, don't you think?
So, a sketch from this week's foodie world (not one of the illustrations for the book, just a personal record of a lovely Wednesday evening with my husband), as well as a few pages from my walk journal.
