I recently came across the work of Erin Jang, a NYC-based illustrator and graphic designer. Erin started a project this year entitled "Food Sketches: A Series of Occasional Drawings." Every so often she posts a digital image based on a food she sees, wants, cooks, or consumes. They have such bright, fun colors, and great contrasts. It is so fun to think of dishes as art... like the gum ball depiction above! Check out some of her other brilliant images:
Deviled eggs with Benton's ham
Asian-style eggs with soy sauce, sesame oil, scallions, and grape tomatoes
Strawberry-kiwi nougat candy
Chocolate cherry roll
Aren't they great? Check out these and other images at Erin's project site, www.food-sketches.blogspot.com. What foods would you like to graphically depict? I would love to do a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, or grilled cheese with tomato soup!
