Food is art in so many ways. We're so used to seeing it that sometimes, we fail to see it as a form of art. Culinary Arts is a somewhat small and forgotten gallery, specially when compared with popular galleries like traditional art. However, there's a vibrant community and many talented artists showing off their art.
Food is special, not only because of the obvious organic necessity to consume it, but also because food, preparing it and eating is one of the few human activities that involves all five traditional senses, therefore rendering it unique in the way we appreciate it. Eating is a whole artistic experience, from the moment we smell the food, when we see it, savor it, feel its texture and the different noises it may produce during preparation or consumption.
I invite you to see food in a whole different way today. Go a step beyond fast and convenience foods. Add a bit of art to your life, live like an artist as a whole. It's not very time consuming, it's not difficult, but it's one of the most rewarding experiences there is day to day.
It's art for all the senses

What I learned from my mistakes drawing manga
Anime and Manga week 1. Introduction In 2009 I took Japanese lessons and next to me was a girl drawing manga characters. I watched her draw and it looked like magic to me, seeing how she made a character appear out of nowhere. This was the key moment in which I decided that I wanted to learn that craft too and create my own characters! Many manga artists have had similar key moments, for most it was watching their favourite anime or reading an awesome manga or even playing a Japanese videogame. However I have seen many aspiring mangakas give up at the beginner stage, believing they simply sucked at drawing. I personally think that this is

How to create a foggy atmosphere
Photomanipulation Weekend How to create a foggy atmosphere This is a small tutorial explaining how to create a foggy atmosphere. I will be using my artwork "The Witch" as reference. Artwork without fog First you need a clouds/smoke texture. Preferably one that is larger than your artwork.
