I just finished a one-year stint doing a column for Bon Appetìt magazine, for The Foodist column. The Foodist is also known as Andrew Knowlton, a food critic who appears from time to time on Iron Chef America. Basically, the column is a place where readers write in questions for Knowlton about food; the magazine would choose one of the questions for me to illustrate.
The column was always a chance to have fun with food items, the concepts always not too deep but more oriented towards a light-hearted solution. At left, Halloween candy!
Burger etiquette: fork or hands?
We just got the latest issue in the mail, and Bon Appetìt has been completely redesigned. It also moved to New York from Los Angeles, and has hired a new editor in chief.
The redesign looks great! Although they dropped me and a few other regulars (we always looked forward to Neiman's column, where he did a groovy one-color image), it's good to see them still using some illustration within it's pages.
This one here at left was about how restaurants are at the mercy of bad reviews on yelp.com.
Splitting the Check
So, these are a few of the images that I did for the column. Always had to fit within a square and be a silhouette.
Anyway, sad to see this gig come to an end. I love drawing anything to do with food!
