Becca Corney

Becca is another illustrator who contributed to the The framed images on display were part of a series of drawings in Beccas own cookbook 'plateful'. All the illustrations were pain stakingly hand drawn with the use of a dip pen. Becca scoured charity shops and vintage boutiques in order to find the perfect plates to hold each dish. All the recipes contained in the book she cooked herself and the illustrations of the meals really did look delicious. I was so impressed with her work as you can see her love of art and food colliding into such a beautiful cook book. The book also contained lovely hand rendered text.  I will add links to her website later :-)

Lydia Hannah Thomas illustration

At the AUB illustration show quite a few illustrators were showing off their talents. I'll be doing a series posts featuring some of my favourite works.
So to begin, Lydias work. Its fresh (not only because of the fruit) and quirky, with a great colour palette. I love her fruit heads (seen below the paintings displayed on the wall). One side of the wood painted as a fruit and the other as a face. These interesting wooden characters just make me feel happy. I enjoy that her work contains certain fruit motifs, even if its just the texture of a pineapple for a background.
