Once upon a time I got asked to draw confections for a website project. That really DID sound like a fairy tale to me! When Daniel, chef and proprietor of lucettegrace, started his website redesign project, I was thrilled to be included in the design, photography and illustration process. While Sara [a.k.a. Snark Studios] was working in code and programming I was busy sketching on my iPad.
It was a fabulous experiment. Daniel loves seeing his work in sketches and I love sketching his work. As a former baker, I can appreciate these little works of art and the patience it takes for each and every piece. The best part? They taste even more delicious than they look. For the website, we decided to shoot photos that showed how beautiful the pastries were inside and out. That meant we got to try them all— hazard of the job— since we needed to shoot those forks full too!
I’ve come a long way… from the beginnings of our relationship when Daniel and I were in the same small business group and he wouldn’t share a peep of what he was planning… to getting to draw the goodies before they make it to the case! I love being just a small part of this neighborhood staple. And I’m not the only one on the block that loves lucettegrace. The #brownyellowdog is officially trained to look for yellow and gray boxes. No kidding. She knows exactly what kind of goodness she will find in them!
If I could draw food every day, I would. Here’s to making friends with neighbors.
