Mark Hoffmann for Cooking Light

Not an easy task, illustrating a story about love, loss, and fruit salad. The author and copy director for Cooking Light, Susan Roberts McWilliams, "wanted the article to have a lot of hope and thankfulness to it." Mark Hoffmann's illustration was the perfect compliment to this touching story about how we respond with food when someone loses a loved one.

Delight in the details and composition of these richly painted down-home pieces. Feature art directed by Sheri Wilson and 2015 winner of the SPD merit award for Single/Spread Illustration in the Lifestyle, Travel/Food/Shelter category.

Ian Phillips maps a tasty treat!

Persian's are a delicious treat Ian encountered in Northern Ontario.  Fascinated by the phenomenon, he illustrated this map highlighting where Persian's can be found.  Ian says, "Legend has it that sometime in the 1930s a Mr. Bennett baked the very first Persian in honour of a guest visiting from the Middle East. A conflicting story declares the delicacy was named after its American cousin, the Pershing, which was named after General Pershing. Others claim the Five Star Bakery originated the special treat as a means to sell day-old cinnamon buns.  Debate over the secret ingredient in the icing — whether it’s raspberry, cherry, or strawberry — also continues to this day.  Although Persians now abound throughout The Lakehead region, confrontations over which bakery produces the most authentic pastry have created a permanent melee throughout The Great Northwest."  To see more of Ian Phillip's maps and other illustrated treats visit here.

Alanna Cavanagh's Christmas Pudding!

  At this time of year it's all about sharing the season's delicious treats with our friends and family.  This lovely fresh image created by Alanna Cavanagh for her holiday surface design collection, was chosen by designer, Margaret Dyer (who has such good taste), of Austen Eliot Communications.  It was sent out to her clients as part of a limited edition gift basket presentation.  Printed on a  beautiful matt stock, the colour just pops!

 

Wouldn't you just love to send this greeting card out next year?  In 2013, i2i art will be exhibiting at SURTEX and one of our stationery clients is sure to snap this image up for their holiday line, so stay tuned.
