Birthday Recipe by Debanjana Saha
Every month one artist wins $100
It's that simple. On the 1st of each month we pick our favorite recipe that was submitted during the previous month and award the artist $100. Submit a recipe today and you could be the next lucky winner! (We say lucky because we don't always pick the most artistic recipe...creativity, yumminess, and emotion play a big part in our decision too).
April 2013 There were so many great recipes this month that we couldn't decide on a winner! We narrowed it down to these 3 fantastic recipes (all done by Columbus College of Art & Design students actually!), then asked TDAC fans to vote for their favorite by leaving a comment on the recipe. 43 people picked Mostly Toastly by Hannah Ross. Congrats Hannah! 33 people voted for (day old) Donut Pudding and 23 people voted for The Dirty Girl Scout .
March 2013 We had 64 amazing and varied submissions in March but kept coming back to this scrumptious recipe for Greek Walnut Pie by Columbus College of Art & Design student Rachel Pierce. We love how well integrated everything is right down to the greek style font. The Greek gods would be proud!
February 2013 Devon Johnson, a student from Maine College of Art, will receive $100 for the super hip styling and great lettering on his recipe for Asian Cucumber Salad . We love all the positive energy that this illustration emits. Congrats Devon!
January 2013 Naomi Bardoff from Oakland, California is this month's $100 winner. Her recipe for Lentil Soup with Lemon sings with brightness and healthy freshness. The real soup is every bit as wonderful as the illustration. When this recipe arrived we immediately made it!
December 2012 Monika Roe is a frequent contributor to this site, as well as sister-site They Draw & Travel. We adore everything she does, and this latest recipe is no exception! Monika has taken Cranberry Sauce to a whole new level with her fabulous festive flourishes and sparkly crystal! We want to sit at the dinner table where this is being served!
November 2012 Ciara Flood, a London-based freelance designer and illustrator, illustrated this month's winning recipe: Giant Bun in the Oven . This recipe is not only an awesome illustration full of great style and lettering but a scrumptious recipe and best of all, a full blown party idea!
October 2012 So Yeon Kim, a student of Rebecca Bradley's at Maryland Institute College of Art, illustrated this month's winner recipe: Avocado & Egg Toast . It was almost impossible to select a winning recipe this month, but we kept coming back to this mouth-watering illustration. It's almost like watching the meal being made right in front of your eyes - delicious in every way!
September 2012 Małgorzata Lewandowska-Zych from Warsaw, Poland create this recipe for Vegetable Soup that totally blew us away. It's one of the most creative designs we've seen not only on TDAC, but anywhere. And the best part is...it's a poem too!
August 2012 Kostis Tzortzakakis is from the Greek island of Crete and his recipe for Dakos couldn't have came at a better time - we had this dish for lunch in a hillside taverna while on vacation together this month!
July 2012 Stacy Porter's recipe for a Star-Spangled Trifle was sent to us just in time for the 4th of July holiday and it is not only easy to make and super festive, but also really well-designed.
