Chef Kitty is back!

(click on art for a larger view)

I first found out about this fun blog called They Draw and Cook from Roz (check out her adorable entry here). They invite artists and designers to draw/render a recipe. Since I love drawing food, I had to do this piece. Anyone can participate and submit, so go check it out! Thanks to Nate and Salli for this wonderful idea.

Chef Kitty first appeared when I made some recipe cards. With all her top secret recipes, I'm sure there is a picture book story somewhere. I also forgot how much I love illustrating and designing at the same time. I want to get more of those projects.

On another note, I want to thank Megumi for the sunshine award! Check out her adorable work here.

Gahhh! If every recipe looked like this, I would seriously cook more often. You make it look so fun!

I really, really like the way you tackled the sequence by making it into a kinda board game route. The character design and colour palette are lovely too... bold without being too in your face about it. The design of each ingredient is so well observed (I'm jealous, couldn't think what to do on my piece) with lovely pack graphics which are so clear at small size! Outstanding work!

I love that you can make even something as monotonous as a recipe card into a kid-friendly event. Incredible work-- as usual.
