It's tomato season in the northern hemisphere, and what a variety! When I lived in France, most of the years spent were in the region of Provence. One of my very favorite recipes was tomates à la provençale, a simple peasant tomato dish that requires fresh beefy tomatoes, a day's old baguette, green herbs that you can pick in the countryside, and pure olive oil. Put it in the oven and voilà! Coincidentally, one of my favorite authors, American food writer MFK Fisher, felt the same way about the same Provence where she lived too. Bon appétit!
I was supposed to submit this for the Food Geometry Handpicked Challenge, but then I decided that maybe I can turn this into a series of food illustrations depicting different cuisines around the world. This first one features savory dishes from Japan.
This illustration is for the FOOD GEOMETRY challenge.
I love hot pot! I love geometry! I love patterns.I love texture.
In this illustration, I combined the pattern table and geometric food for a Hot pot scene!I love the final result!
Food Geometry | In thinking about the geometry of food, I needed to look no further than my garden, ripe with all the makings for a grilled pizza: tomatoes, chives, basil & oregano. As a letterpress printer I like experimenting with forms, and pressure printing is a wonderful way to capture the details in plants. I arranged the leaves of the ingredients on my Vandercook 4 press, inked them up, layed cotton paper over top, and rolled the carriage down the press bed to impress the images into the page. The tomatoes were a beautifully explosive disaster, so I gave myself permission to print circles instead. I then went back & printed the tomato leaves overtop the red circles; the perfect final touch. As I printed the aromatic oils were released from the leaves, making my mouth water. The hand lettering was done with a fountain pen, rather than wood or metal type, to capture the spontaneity and ease of my new favorite late-summer meal.
