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~
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~!
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.
