My Foodie ABC: A Little Gourmet's Guide

In January I spent a month or so illustrating this sweet little alphabet book for DuoPress; a set of proofs came in the mail yesterday. How exciting! Working in Photoshop as usual, I chose all Pantone swatches (which I recommend to my students all of the time), and I'm pleased to report the prints are gorgeous: perfect color matching. Quel relief!

The author, Puck, is a perfect gentleman and quite talented. The whole project came together beautifully. Copies can be pre-ordered at, although the book won't officially be on the shelves until the fall.

A range of unusual foods are featured in the book. Trust me, it will make you hungry. I gained at least five pounds when I was working on the art.

DuoPress is a great little publishing company. Check out their other titles at their website:

Happy reading, and Bon Appetit!
