One of my favorite themes to illustrate is food art, especially chocolate art! I have a wonderful client that has licensed my art for their chocolate calendar every year. I am thankful that they value artists creating original artwork for them and don't resort to using cheap chocolate clip art, as some companies do. I always put my heart into my illustrations. When I illustrate a chocolate image, I will visit a local bakery or specialty store to buy some yummy goodies for reference. I will take some bites and savor the flavors of the chocolate, so that I can interpret those flavors with color, shadows and highlights into the painting.
Here is one of my favorite illustrations of a chocolate cupcake
from sketch to final art.
