More food related stuff

So many drawings, I had to organise things a bit better. So, this is the page for the food related stuff. The illustrations can still contain food but they are mostly about things that can hold food or that have a link to food. I hope that's clear, enjoy!

A pea on a plate

Boerenbont plate

A pea set on a plate. Actually, this plate motif is a very well known one in the Netherlands, it's called 'Boerenbont'. It suddenly reminds me of my grandmother's plates. What were they like, I can't remember, I have to see what I can do!

Coffee!

Koffie met een koekje

Coffee and a cookie.
Just because it's nice.

Milk bottles

Melkfles met verschillende kleuren achtergrond.
Milk bottle with differently coloured backgrounds, just because I like that, it's nice to experiment with colour.

Ramekin

Dessert kommen die mijn moeder van haar baas kreeg.

This bowl is one from a set of three. It was given to my parents when they married, given to them by my mother's boss in Paris. He was some kind of duke, so a posh man 😊. I never met him.

Strohrum

Stroh rum in een fles.

Stroh rum, oh jeez I have a story about that. But I won't tell it. It is a bit longish. But it makes me laugh now that I think about this again.

Tomato soup

Tomatensoep

Tomato soup on a plate. This one makes my students wonder how on earth they can create such a design. But it's simple. I teach them the tools for the job in just four Illustrator lessons.

A bottle of beer

Een bierflesje, had ik gewoon zin in.

A bottle of beer, because I felt like drawing it.

Old design plate

Erwtensoep

A plate with a very Dutch Dish: pea soup. It is a thick soup with saucage named 'knakworst' in it, it's lightly smoked. But it can also be served with a vegetarian variation or without meat or vegetarian substitute at all. BUTTT now about that plate: the soup may be so very Dutch, but the plate is actually a Belgian design; from Boch. It is already quite old.

My grandmother's plate

Het bord van oma

Look, I was doing plates, right? And there it was: my grandmother's plate! I found it and decided to draw it.

I remember that when I was about three years old, I was trying to prick the beans because I thought they were real. And later, when I was about four, I pricked them again and realized 'Ah yes, they weren't real' and I felt a bit ashamed, hoping no one had seen me doing it.

Cupcake for student

Een cup cake voor een cursiste

Okay, I know: this is food. It should be in the 'food' section, right? But no. I feel this should be in the 'drawings' because I used to draw one for birthdays of people I knew and then personalise them. This one is for a former student who attended the Illustrator education.

Chocolate

Chocolat

Just a lot of chocolate. I would always prefer the dark chocolate, my brothers and sisters were more of the milky persuasion.

maybe soon
