inspired by vintage advertisements of canned foods from the 1950's, I wanted to create a fun kitschy vibrant picnic featuring an array of delights such as elaborately moulded jello, chiffon pie, and shrimp cocktail. Of course no picnic would be complete without ELLIE B'S BAKE BEAN CASSEROLE SPARKLER.
One of my favorite parts about vintage food advertisements are the strange recipes included alongside the ad, so I just had to come up with a whacky dish to accompany my new fictitious bean brand! Of course you can alternatively eat Ellie B's beans straight from the can, and be sure to bring extra to share with the ants!
For this delish dish, we bought the herbs from our local farmers market. This year, the shopping experience at the market is different. All shoppers and vendors are required to wear masks. Shoppers can't touch the produce and must maintain 6' distance from one another. The first hour of shopping is restricted to the elderly population and those with health issues. Despite the experience, the produce tasted and looked good as usual.
Here I tried to bring in some Indian influence on the border. I am a fan of the paper texture and how organic a drawing looks. This was supposed to have been submitted for the beans around the world contest but I didn't finish on time.
I knew I wanted to draw desserts with beans, and upon doing some research, I found that different countries around Asia have their own versions of shaved ice and sweet beans. I wanted to highlight this fact in my illustration, so I made sure to include other ingredients that are particular to each country's interpretation of the dessert. I personally love having lots of beans in my halo-halo!
