I’ve actually had a few suggestions from people recently to create some food illustrations. Strangely, I’m not sure why I hadn’t thought of doing this myself before. Spending most days cooking and creating recipes, it would make sense for me to enjoy drawing food as much as eating it! However, I’ve never really drawn any food before. So, due to my requests, I finally decided it was time for me to begin some food illustration.
For my first illustrations, I decided to go for a food that everyone loves – cupcakes! They’re always so beautiful, well decorated, and I knew they would make something fun and exciting to draw.
….Although, I did end up spending quite a lot of time searching for my drawing inspiration, as there are just sooo many beautiful images of cupcakes everywhere that I got a bit lost amongst all of the mouthwatering photographs.
Eventually, I found my cupcakes and got illustrating. I really enjoyed creating them, and definitely think I’ll be doing more food illustration from now on. Here are the results below – I hope you like them!
