Food illustration by illustrator and artist Yaansoon
Personal project – I created this food illustration for my About page on Yaansoon.com, The Illustration Blog of a Nomadic Mediterranean Foodie. I wanted it to reflect the different aspects of Mediterranean life, especially the North African one. I also wanted to create a mixed-media piece with my watercolour illustrations as part of this digital artwork. To create a collage-style look, I used royalty- free photos to create textures that remind us of the Middle Eastern and North African aesthetic, an example being the kilim in the host’s sleeves.
Illustration Technique: I used Adobe Illustrator to create this vector illustration, with some of the elements here being analog illustrations that where created using ink on paper, or watercolour. My food illustration style has evolved past this point, but I like the colour palette and the patterns and so I thought I’d include it in my portfolio.
