The Illustrated Smoothie Recipe!

Click for detail

Hey guys...! Well, I finally had time to finish this piece that I started last week. The very fun website "They Draw and Cook" has a bunch of illustrated recipes done by fellow bloggers and artists. (Anyone can submit!) I thought I'd contribute and throw in this little bit I did; A delicious summer-time smoothy for all to enjoy! ;) I had a great time doing this.


Started in vector (which looked like the below art that I've been posting), then I took it to Photoshop, and added a whole bunch of crazy textures and detail. I enjoyed the process, though it does take quite some time! Anyways, hope you guys like the art...and the smoothy! :)

Thanks again to http://www.theydrawandcook.com :) Check it out, lots of diverse creative chef/artists!

Loving the colours, the textures....AWESOME.
It's amazing to think you've done it digitally (I mean that in a nice way). It looks so organic...if you get my drift.
Awesome.

If all recipe books came like this...I might actually start cooking..Oh, no, wait! I would just look at the pictures! Then again, at least now people would understand why I never go beyond the recipe reading stage! : )))

Hey Abz!! Been to long. Just been a little hectic of late with some personal things that need my attention. But man o man have I been missing out on what you've been posting. All of these illustrations came out great. Love the look and feel you gave them all. I'm sure the client was very happy. Great work as always.
