This is the last illustration I will have the pleasure of doing for Oryx Magazine. Like many periodicals, they are moving less in the direction of illustration and more towards photography. It was a great pleasure working with Steve Peaple, Lindy Polmeer, and Rachel Smith over the past three years (that’s a long haul guys, thanks!) and hopefully I will get the chance to work with them at Agencyfish in the future. Click on images to enlarge, a few close-ups are below.

Kostas’ Souvlaki is located a few streets away. Delicious souvlaki!

Fall sketches: Pumpkin and Pomegranate

I’m sure I’ll have drawings of tasty turkey next week, but in the meantime–gourd! I love the twisty stems on mini-pumpkins. I love the voluptuous colors of pomegranates. Yellow flowers, eh, well, they’re ok I guess. 🙂

Carmelized Onions with Bleu Cheese

Caramelize (I spelled it wrong in the picture!) a halved Cipollini onion, flip it over, add some broth and some fresh thyme. When it’s nearly translucent top with some bleu until it’s melty. Delicious! Originally posted on Lucy Knisely’s Snacklove tumblr to herald her book Relish, which is out now–did you see her at MoCCA Artfest?
