You cook it, I draw it!

My illustration work for butter, basil and breadcrumbs eventually led to my adoption to upstate New York. My new mum, the lovely Prudy Blank, has just sent off the legal papers and I’m looking to move into my new home as soon as we get the nod from the U. S. of A. I can’t wait to be fed those wholesome meals and nibble on some ice cream sandwiches.

Jokes aside, it has been lovely working with Prudy and her excitable emails were just priceless! This is what I made for her cookery blog.

Especially the making and baking blogs benefit from lovingly illustrated watercolours.
These are the initial sketches:
