Alice Princess' African Egg Stew | Ndiwo Za Mandanda

Alice Princess' African Egg Stew | Ndiwo Za Mandanda - student project

Eggs may not be a fruit, but tomatoes are. I really wanted to illustrate one of my mother's African recipes. We are working on a web series about culture and cooking so it just seemed to be a good idea. I watched you class months ago and actually never thought I could make such an illustration. Thanks for the prompt.

I pretty much sketched this directly onto Illustrator, I had drawn similiar eggs, onions and tomatoes before. It's my comfort food. I used one of Kyle's watercolor brushes to make the background.

It's been egg-citing to see the illustration go up on They Draw and Cook.
