Are you familiar with the site They Draw and Cook? Developed by brother and sister Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell, They Draw and Cook is an innovative site that features illustrated recipes from artists all over the world.
I first came across it last year and knew I wanted to submit a piece. That’s when I submitted Heavenly Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Most recently they had a recipe contest for California Figs (Winners will be announced on March 26th). I had a lot of fun with my entry. Turning ingredients into characters is quite the experience. I’m planning on creating some other recipes using the same concept.
There are a lot of awesome pieces that were submitted to the contest. Be sure to take a look at them.
