Food Memoirs 

My short illustrated book 'Food Memoirs' is a compilation of people's most memorable meals. I wanted to show how food can be at the forefront of peoples minds, and can be part of their most precious memories. My aim was to capture these peoples' food memories through the descriptions they gave me, I asked them about the taste and colours they associate with it. In every person's meal they speak about the company they were with and how in a way it brought them together, connecting them through an experience of the meal they ate together. The illustrations were drawn on Procreate, I use a method of drawing on top of sketches with a watercolour effect and then add chalky lines on top to add more definition. I also wanted to include recipes within the book, so that the reader is invited to cook the meal and re-create the memory themselves.
