Been a weird week. My Dad was rushed to the hospital in Ann Arbor on Wednesday, and I’ve been running back and forth from GR to AA, spending long nights at his bedside with little sleep, and for the most part, postponing work until the whole situation becomes resolved. However, this weekend I got a call from the Journal with an assignment for a set of 6 food illustrations that I didn’t feel I could pass up. I’ll be doing these over the weekend whenever I can squeeze the time in (we brought the computer with us to Ann Arbor, as we stayed in the hospital guest accommodations, so I could work on this project and a few others if time permits). Here are the first two of this series (more to come).
