Food art

Besides food, I also like pretty graphics. So combining the two is mind blowing! Pretty food visuals! For my blog I make all the (food) graphics myself and I get inspired by other drawings/graphics I see on the web. Here are a few pictures which I think are pretty. You might see a similar style […]

MacDonald’s home cook service

I was talking with lazy bear about MacDonald’s having 24/7 service. In the past this didn’t exist in The Netherlands. Now MacDonald’s is slowly becoming like the ones in the US and Asia. I hope one day they will also bring the Big Mac and fries to your home, like in Asia. Then whenever I […]
