Drawn to Food

Project role(s)

In our efforts to eat healthful and low-calorie foods, my wife, Patricia and I have been collecting, experimenting, and calculating calories for healthy recipes we find in magazines, cook books and old family favorites. We thought it would be a fun little side project to accompany each recipe with artwork, since we are both artists. We decided on a watercolor style illustration for consistency.

We plan on creating and collecting more recipes and continue to take turns illustrating our foods that we are drawn to. We developed a Wordpress blog named Drawn to Food, so that we could quickly find it and use our recipes, as well as keeping up with our illustrations.
