One of five Japanese food Illustrations. Each one has it's own little saying that relates to the content. The line art was done in Illustrator and the coloring was done in Photoshop. I'm hoping to one day make these into buttons/pins and T-shirts. This one is the Japanese dessert Hanami Dango. Please Enjoy~!
I wanted to make my illustrations into buttons, and my ultimate goal, T-shirts. These are prototypes for if I made them into buttons. If there are enough people who are interested I will actually get these made. If you would be really interested in buying one or the whole set let me know. The more I know people are serious the surer I am about making it happen. Please Enjoy~
So, this is what I do when I take a break from drawing sexy ladies. People who know me IRL is well aware that I'm a huge food enthusiast. And I love to design menus, plan dinner parties and design dishes and sweets.
These are the visual designs for some macron recipes I came up with on the train. I might not make them until next summer so I drew this to remember the idea Here's also my idea for the fillings:
1. Cosmopolitan: Butter cream with Cointreau and cranberry purée (and sugar!). Red food colouring. Orange zest for decoration. 2. Mojito: Butter cream with rum, lime zest, chopped fresh mint. Lime curd in the centre. Fresh mint for decoration. 3. Strawberry Daiquiri: Strawberry mousse, finely chopped strawberry pieces, lime juice and rum. Red food colouring. Some non-coloured filling, fresh strawberry slice and fresh lemon balm for decoration. 4. Pina Colada: A mix of butter cream and coconut cream with pineapple purée and rum (might need gelatine to firm up). Dried pineapple crisp and toasted coconut flakes for decoration. 5. Singapore Sling: Butter cream with lime zest, pineapple purée, Cointreau, cherry liqueur and reduced pomegranate syrup. Red food colouring. Pomegranate seeds and candied orange slice for decoration. 6. Sex on the beach: Butter cream with orange zest, cranberry purée, peach purée and finely chopped canned peach. Orange food colouring. 7. Tom Collins: Lemon mousse, a tiny splash of gin, lemon zest and "Pop rocks" or "Space dust". Candied lemon slice for decoration. 8. White Russian: Milk chocolate ganache with Kaluah. Ground coffee beans and white rock sugar for decoration. 9. Appletini: Butter cream with apple purée and apple juice (preferably Granny Smith). Apple jelly in the centre. Green food colouring. Lime zest for decoration. 10. Bloody Mary: I really want to experiment more with this one because it it's hard to make people accept tomato as a dessert but the base is a tomato flavoured custard and sweet tomato compote in the middle made from tomato, sugar, molasses, lemon zest and chilli. Red food colouring. Ground cocoa beans and a thin candied celery slice for decoration. 11. Mai Tai: Butter cream with rum, lime juice, orange zest and Orgeat syrup. Orange food colouring. Maraschino cherry and candied rose petal for decoration. 12. Margarita: Butter cream with lime zest, lime juice and tequila. Sugar on the rim and lime wedge for decoration.
(also, I with there was a "food design" category at dA )
It looks so happy. I've been eyeing the little sushi packs in H.E.B. a lot lately. I don't know what it is about the stuff that keeps me craving it. I hate the seaweed wrapper and fish isn't my favorite food, but for some reason I keep eating it...
Project: Food From Around the World Region/Country/Culture: Japan
Notes: Our original piece was just the "bento" set. Due to popular demand (and general questioning), we expanded the foodies we had. We made 2 separate sets: one for what we think of "traditionally" Japanese food - and I know that's always up for debate, but please save that for elsewhere - and foods that are foreign in origin and have been adapted for Japanese tastes.
The result is this chart/print thing we sold at anime conventions. I think we covered a good amount.
Please don't forget to visit our website if you're interested the 1.25" buttons for these!

Re-released sushi bento mousepad - as a print for Anime Weekend Atlanta 2011 due to popular demand! Thank you for looking - I hope you are pleased by these virtual sushi and snacks and are not as hungry as I am right now~ Bless y'all!
Oh! And the Japanese is "いただきます," meaning "Itadakimasu!" "I humbly receive" is what the Japanese traditionally say before enjoying a meal.
EDIT: Re-uploaded because colors were SUPER RED like ANGRY SUSHI. @_@
