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.

Excellent and interesting presentation!
Ohn Mar Win is one of the illustrators who can make the most regular looking object very beautiful with her art and styling in a very simple way. I would highly recommend this class as she takes us in a step-by-step journey into the how-to's of recipe illustration.
Really enjoyed this class. I had no idea one could do so much with simple illustrations and the computer! Win's work is lovely!!!
