This is not really food related, but I find this video very inspiring in how to keep on improving your art. Or any other skill.
Also I really like the art style. I would like to have these kind of drawing skills one day.
With this blog I am also practicing ‘art’ stuff, so I hope one day I can call myself an artist and put my art in a museum.
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 in my graphics.
Flat design has been a thing the past year. I also think it’s a cool style and quite easy to make. Symmetrical shapes with a lot of similar colors. A few days ago I saw this picture. I just love the colors and shapes. The artist is Ryan Brinkerhoff.
Today I found a studio which makes such cute graphics and their name is Squid & Pig! Piggie!
They have also created cute food stickers for Viber. Here is some cuteness overload:
I have this cookbook (Modernist Cuisine at Home) which has the most beautiful cut through food photos. I wanted the book, because one: the photos are so pretty and two: they use a lot of scientific ways to explain the recipes. Like exact temperatures, different kind of measurements etc.

Further I like to draw food. Like these dumplings:
I like black lined drawings (+ water paint). It feels very powerful to not use the eraser, but just to draw everything ‘perfect’ in one go. I follow Paul Heaston on Instagram which draws superb black and white drawings. I can learn a lot from him by examining his sketches.
What kind of food art do you like?
Tomorrow I will work on a failed video recipe. Show you guys the Don’ts of filming a recipe.
