Here is a selection of food drawings I have been working on, The drawings are of your everyday food items which include, Fruit and vegetable drawings as well as fast food drawings. This is an ongoing series of drawings of everyday objects that I have taken a keen interest in illustrating. I have tried to capture the identifying features of the items mostly by the pen lines. I vary the pen lines which may consist of a continuous line or broken lines which can fill large and small areas with the drawings.
My early drawings which consisted of mostly outline drawings, have gone under some development, I figured the drawings needed some more depth to them, with that in mind, I have played about with adding subtle details to the drawings, in terms of lines, different line styles and weights. I have begun to introduce limited colour to the illustrated drawings.
My work consists of black and white lines with very limited colour. The everyday drawing series, It was important to investigate how colour could be used with the black and white line drawings. The colour developed into an almost solid colour, with a hint of colour shading> it was important to overall retain the drawn illustrated pen look and feel, without the illustrations looking to digital, which is a conscious decision for me,
