A passionate cook - trade of tools

Project background

Although I work as a graphic designer and illustrator, I decided to make postcards of my hobby - cooking. I took an inspiration from an old illustrated cooking book I found in my grandma library. After I did my illustration job, I added some handwritten notes.

I drew two rough sketches, but final template I made in Photoshop

Step-by-step project

Dry ink textures and objects - I used different tools for making textures - I played with a sponge, dry brushes, calligraphy nibs and pen brush.

I got really useful tips from Tom and my classmates, so I cleaned my kitchen and threw up background textures. Now I need make some new hand-written words that will express my passion of cooking.

I drew some words to represent my cooking. I used pen brush - I really like this tool. It was quite cheap, I found it in some store in children department, it is some marker, but I dipped it into ink and it works absolutely perfect for lettering
