Been following you for a while now and your drawings are getting better and better. I'm wondering, do you usually base your drawings off of pictures or real food or do you work solely from imagination?

Thank you, Kind Anon. While drawing from life is definitely my preference, it’s a little difficult to do with perishable subjects like food. :) Usually I end up using a photo or even better 3 or 4 photos. And since the brain has a tricky way of distilling and flattening things, unless I’m doodling or brainstorming I pretty much always use some kind of reference. It’s the best way to both stay true to what’s actually there, and to heighten select colors and textures.
