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!
As a child, my father had Friday's off from work. In the morning, he would put on a big pot of pinto beans that we would eat together for lunch. I would sit at the table and play with my toy animals and use uncooked beans as ‘feed.’ We always had fresh tortillas for scooping and my dad would shred cheese for us to put on top. This is one of my favorite memories growing up! My mom would then turn the leftover beans into refried beans for other meals over the next few days.
