I'll Show You Mine...(TDAC, IF-Cultivate)



It was too tempting to keep this under wraps, so "bare" with me, as I post my submission for They Draw And Cook, who've teamed up with Simply Beautiful, Simply Delicious, California Figs to host an illustrated recipe contest featuring figs as an ingredient. My recipe is a simple fig and apple crisp.

Figs, leaves, apples? Hmmm...My mind wanders to the Garden of Eden, (or eatin'?) where I hear they cultivate a taste for all things forbidden. "Go ahead," the little voice entices me, "one picture, serving double duties... Nobody will mind!"

Seems almost sinful, but you can view a lot more over at Illustration Friday this week. Oh, and if you want to see the recipe in all its glory, I just found out it was posted this morning. You can see it here. Take a peek!

  3. Tee hee Michele, that is a very funny take. I have a real aversion to snakes but I think yours has such a cheeky expression that I could grow to love him! What a character, no wonder Eve is smiling (or has she seen something beneath the fig leaves..., the tree of course not Adam's!) I didn't notice any thing such as double duties here...honest.. (don't look at my fingers crossed behind my back)....;0)
    Have a great week,

  7. This is so well done! Great idea! I enjoyed seeing it in higher resolution, with the link. The colors are really wonderful - that blue with the orange/deep red. Really warm ... and the green is so nice. The figs are jewels :)
    Thank you for your comment.
