They Draw and Cook

This is a 2-page spread for a Recipe Illustration submitted to a website called "They Draw And Cook". My Granddaughter Laura
(who is a graphic Artist) has submitted several of these illustrations and has been published in their fun Recipe Book "They Draw and Cook" that has just become available.
She talked me into doing a recipe illustration that had to be on a certain size paper, and scanned to certain dimensions, etc. which is over my head :-) sooooo--oooo Laura did all the measurements and scanning and we submitted it--and Woo-Hoo, they put it on their website. Also, they put it on Facebook :-0
I had done this in another form in one of my journal/sketchbooks--but had to re-arrange it etc. The middle of the bookpage is right between the two Lime pieces top to bottom.
If I ever get "published" I'll really faint!!! But it was fun! (especially at my age :-)

What fun to be published! This is such a playful and colorful recipe. I might enjoy cooking more if I had a book like this.

What a fun idea! That would be a neat cookbook to have with all the color and illustrations.

Laura Mayes said...

YAY!!!! I had so much fun spending time with you and you did such a great job on the illustration!

Marj said...

Wow, thanks to all of you for your kind comments...of course I love it. :)
Laura, you were responsible for "making" me take the BIG STEP and resketching/redesigning/re-watercoloring that recipe and then doing the Techie stuff on the computer. Aren't Grandchildren wonderful??? :-) They naturally know how to do all of this!

This page is charming and what fun for you to submit this to the other site and share with your family.
P.S. I just found out about your site from your comment on Catherine's site.
