“the best food i’ve ever eaten”

client: illustrators for hiredescription: an illustration for illustrators for hire that was included in the new zine—the best food i've ever eaten. it's a collection of food illustrations by 87 freelance illustrators.

i was inspired to revisit my italian roots for this project:
“ciambotta is a traditional italian vegetable stew that brings me back to sunday dinners at my grandpa’s house. this dish reminds me endlessly of the warmth, comfort, and fun my grandpa brought into my life.”
