Mediterranean Culinary Tour, Middle Eastern, Italian & Mediterranean food illustration by illustrator and artist Yaansoon
I made this Mediterranean Culinary Tour food illustration to explore food culture across a number of Mediterranean countries, known for their distinctive culinary styles, namely: Italy, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Lebanon and Turkey. You can read more about the inspiration behind this illustration in my blog post, dubbed: “Mediterranean Food Illustrations: Italian, Moroccan & Turkish Culinary Tour.”
I love to mix and match patterns and cultural elements from different culinary cultures. I also love to draw food packaging found in countries like Italy and Algeria. Putting these elements together in one illustration helps contrast these cultural moods against each other – creating an illustration that celebrates food and cultural diversity in more than one way.
Illustration Technique: Pen and ink linear artwork on sketchbook paper, followed by digital painting using various paint and texture brushes in Adobe Photoshop.
