2. Nice!

You should try to get work illustrating a cook book. That's a very professional drawing.

5. I've done the commercial art thing

Itís a backstabbing business. Or, at least, it was for me. So now I do art for me and that is OK. Iíve been commissioned and that has worked out OK too but going out there to try to make a living isnít something I want to ever try again.

7. I thought that drawing looked professional!

You could sell these to cookbook publishers even if you don't want to make a living at it. I'd want it for my cookbook if I was publishing one.

10. Another idea... illustrated recipes.

They have been popping up on my Pinterest page recently. Like this print from Etsy:

I'm telling you, she could do an avocado toast recipe print/tea towel and make some bank.

3. That has a neat throwback look to it.

 

A distinct retro vibe; very nice!

6. I never noticed that

Funny how things you never think about come out in your artwork. Thanks for pointing that out.

8. I see peas

hey, that's my name Icypeas. LOL

Is this colored pencils?

Did you read The Girl with the Pearl Earring. I always remember the beginning where Vermeer saw the new housemaid chopping vegetables and arranging them by color. That's where he immediately got interested in her and she became his assistant/model (fiction, I know). But it's a very picturesque scene. The white of the cauliflower reminded me of this.

Great Work!

9. Thanks for noticing the peas IcyPeas!

For me they are a very important element of the drawing (done in prismacolor pencils). They actually ground the objects so it looks like the vegetables are on a surface. Otherwise the vegetables would look like theyíre floating. The peas also add to the interest in the drawing although very few people notice them.
