About This Class

9fe39d5e

Vintage kitchens and old family recipes evoke various images for many people. In this class I want to show you how to create a vintage inspired illustrated recipe. You could use your grandma's recipe for apple crumble or place a modern recipe in an old style setting. Adding the vintage element is easier than it sounds. I'll show you how to research your chosen era, one thats personal to you in fact. Then draw out the different elements and compile your illustrated recipe with ease ( using the They Draw and Cook layout) You'll need a basic knowledge of CC Illustrator.

SO helpful technically and to create overall concepts for recipes. Also - every Skillshare class should have a blooper reel at the end!
Such beautiful work! Great showcase of how to work in illustrator while retaining a hand drawn aesthetic.
Love this class! Thanks for sharing so many wonderful tips!
