Ode to a family recipe~
Champagne Mangoes are my favorite. It was a delight to paint & collage these golden fruits. This family recipe was handed down from mother to daughter. Vivid colors of India enliven ingredients to compose this mouthwatering accompaniment. This is why I love what I do!

Super nice people and a very cool thing to be involved with.
Nate Padavick and Salli S. Swindell are a brother/sister design and illustration team known as Studio SSS. They have created hundreds of magazine and book illustrations, thousands of greeting card designs, and, of course, many super tasty illustrated recipes!
Here is the illustrated recipe and the description. THIS is what I want to do. I love food so.
Recipe by: Julian Calcott & Ed Szymanski
This recipe was inspired by Cherry Point Restaurant, a bright star in Brooklyn newcomer eateries. Dreamed up by Julian Calcott & Ed Szymanski of Cherry Point, this salad is deceivingly “simple”. It was a delight to illustrate all the elements of taste that make up this lips smacking dish.
TDAC make books with many of the submitted illustrations, which informs the layout of the recipe. Imagine a gutter in the middle of the page for a book. My map of Montauk was in their book last year of maps, so I know the routine. You can buy it on Amazon HERE.
I am excited to make more recipe illustrations with favorite chefs! More to come . . .
Back in 2005, I was asked by Williamsburg Diner regular Justin Lowe to contribute a painting to a group show at Printed Matter in Manhattan. The inspiration was Neil Young's patterned liner notes from the album "On the Beach". I took the pattern of the liner notes, and overlaid a portrait of cream being poured into the baked eggs. The "baked eggs" were a play on words and reference to the time the albums was made, 1974. It was the 70's and lots of people were getting "baked". Eggs are just plain wholesome & part of the fabric of our diet, as is the cream being poured into the dish. So it created a visual juxtapose of that moment of time in history. And I listened to a lot of Neal Young which is always good. I still love this painting.
