Almost a year ago, while embracing the world of social media with my instagram account @marialoorart, I came across the theydrawandcook.com website by Nate and Sally Swindell. I immediately was blown away by the concept of the site and all the awesome talent showcased there. Since then, while juggling a full time design job, my freelance practice, painting and of course parenting, my dream has been to submit a recipe to TDAC. I knew I wanted to show my vegetarian recipes but It took me longer than I expected to decide what style to do it. Finally after watching Sally's How to illustrate a Recipe webinar I said: This is it! I am doing it! For some of you who has seen my work on instagram know that I love watercolor and ink, but I finally decided for color pencils on art board. Here is some of the process of my first two recipes.
This is Maria Loor's blog about the creative process on design, art and illustration and life sometimes.
