I was recently asked to create an illustration for Pietopia 2011, a once a year event where participants submit any pie recipe and 300 word written explanation about how their life tastes, in a pie. They knew they wanted a woman on horseback with a giant, steaming pie and it was so fun to work on because I had great, clear directions of what they wanted.
We went through a few variations on the steam. Below is the final image I sent over. Tricia Martin, of Eating Is Art, was a real pleasure to work with and I hope the event is a huge success!
