100 Days of Tasty Treats

THE Challenge:

Illustrating favorite foods and pun-filled phrases for 100 days.

The 100 Day Project is, simply, the idea that you do something every day for 100 days. It’s explained in more detail here. My concept, #100daysoftastytreats, was to create fun, editorial-style illustrations of my favorite foods in combination with pun-tastic phrases. Because who doesn’t love a good pun?

 

There were many challenges (anticipated and otherwise) associated with this project. Immediately, I knew that organization would be key to my success or failure, so I brainstormed an extensive list of foods/dishes/drinks that related to my topic, and then grouped them into categories: carbs, meat, seafood, etc.

What I hadn’t taken into account was that it required time not only to illustrate each piece, but also to find reference images and create/research related puns and then letter said pun. 

 

Finally, writing compelling post copy to accompany each image, especially once I was well into the series, became much more challenging. I worked around this by relating the images and their captions to current events, food I was currently making myself, seasonal holidays, and personal anecdotes.

#makingarteveryday

THE Challenge:

Food-themed prompts to challenge illustrators to work outside of their comfort zone and develop a regular art practice.

Making Art Every Day is an initiative developed by artist Lisa Bardot of Bardot Brushes to help fellow artists develop a daily art practice. Each day has a specific topic, and the first few weeks involved illustrated various food items. 

In this series, I pushed myself to create different types of patterns and explore some different styles of artwork that I hadn’t used in my work before.

Nothing Is Impastable

THE Challenge:

Design a tea towel centered around a pun

The custom fabric site Spoonflower holds user-generated design contests multiple times a month. When I saw their “It’s a Punderful Life” challenge, I knew that I had to enter due to my love of puns and, of course, illustrating food.

Working with the pun “Nothing is Impastable,” I created a tea towel consisting of a hand-lettered phrase and pasta/accoutrement iconography. The tea towel did so well in the contest that it was automatically put up for sale, and got such a great reception across my own social channels that I created a repeating pattern of the icons as well.
