This 8×10″ recipe illustration features one of my favorite recipe color palettes to date!

My recipe illustration process includes reading through the recipe a few times and getting a sense of the steps and their overall rhytym.

There was a lot of movement, and rolling in this one – almost like a dance! I decided to give the recipe illustration a similar sense of flow and movement.

The final piece came together quite nicely! An 8×10″ recipe allows more breathing room in the illustration. In this size, I’m able to explore more interesting information presentations as well as include even more illustrations of the process.

Not a recipe but still combining text and illustrations! This is a creative and meaningful anniversary gift! Use your wedding song or any other song that has special meaning for you then choose 4-5 illustrations to weave in!

The only limitation is no people or pets. This couple chose their wedding venue, honeymoon, first home’s front door and then the paw prints for the pup they adopted!

A few other couples followed suit and this has become a semi-regular commission now!

These commissions don’t have their own special product page and form – but they do follow my recipe pricing structure (8×10″ only) and can be requested directly through my recipe commission page! Just include song lyrics instead of ingredients 😉

The one that started it all! My first venture into the world of illustrating recipes.

The beginning was quite practical. I rarely relate to recipes in list + steps format. To me, it’s a sequence of connected actions and I appreciate seeing it all laid out visually.

So I took our family’s most prized cookie recipe (at least in my opinion) and doodled it out so I could follow it better. And since I’m me…I doodled it rather precisely and used watercolor!

The rest is history. 🙂 I was proud of the final result and made prints for my aunts and cousins as Christmas gifts and they were well received!

Now I just can’t stop making family recipes into little infographic works of art! It’s one of my most popular Christmas commissions each year.
