Jillian Ditner created these small figurative diagrammatic illustrations for one of our favorite magazines, Real Simple. They accompany an article called Walk This Way which featured beautiful photographic images. Each how-to item was introduced with one of Jillian's illustrations to demonstrate the point. Kind of an info-graphic approach that married well with the photography. Check out Jillian Ditner's updated portfolio here.

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."
