Achiote Chickpeas illustration

Before I became an illustrator I spent my professional life working as a chef. When i was in my teens I had no chance of doing anything arty and the best option at the time was to train as a chef but after working in many different restaurants I just had enough of the trade. So coming from a culinary background, for myself at least, I fell into illustrating food completely naturally.

I’ve created illustrations for my food blog; Egg Wan’s Food Odyssey, magazines, maps and various clients but I really do love illustrating food. Below are a few examples.

The Illustrated Wok

One of the magazines I did some work for was the Illustrated Wok. They created a book with recipes by various chefs but illustrated by other people. I was given a recipe by Chef Lisa Tse with a fragrant spicy pot special. I personally love spicy (hot) pots and similar foods so this was a lot of fun to illustrate.
