Michael Harlan Turkell invited me to talk with him on his radio show, The Food Seen. He interviews artists, chefs, designers, photographers, stylists, and other creatives about the intersection of art, design and food.
We taped the show a couple months ago at the Heritage Radio Network studio, in the back of Roberta's Pizza in Brooklyn (best pizza ever), and it went on air today. Michael and I talked about my FOOD SKETCHES project, my grandmother's cooking, working at magazines, the importance of personal projects, and where to find chicken feet gummies.
You can listen to my interview here.
Also, some of my favorite interviews he's done in the past, if you're in a podcast kind of mood:
Todd Selby | Matteo Bologna, Douglas Riccardi & Louise Fili | Fishs Eddy | Ditte Isager | The Canal House | Lotta Jansdotter | Tom Colicchio
I created this set of limited edition screenprints -- "Bacon & Eggs" -- for the Primaries exhibition, a curated art show at Yes Gallery. They invited a small number of artists and illustrators to create work using only primary colors.
This set was created in the spirit of my FOOD-SKETCHES. I will be selling my limited edition screenprints (sold as a set) in my shop soon!
Here are some favorite pieces from other artists who participated in the show. I love seeing what people created within the given color palette.
See all the pieces from the show here (and some are still available for purchase, including mine!)
Please note: I am only selling my prints as a set on my site, but you can buy each print separately on the Yes Gallery site, here.

Cold Fried Chicken and Peekytoe Crab Roll -- dishes from WD-50, an inventive molecular gastronomy restaurant in the Lower East Side. Very recently, the chef, Wylie Dufresne, decided to completely revamp his menu and create all new dishes; so these illustrations are of dishes that are from his original classic menu. Read more here, and view this slideshow of some of his new dishes here. The Peas 'n' Carrots dish is brilliant.
Jen from Simply Breakfast asked me to do a little illustrated Q&A over on her site. Check it out here. It's a new feature she's doing where she asks five questions about that first meal of the day. I love her food photography, and she also has a beautiful side project called The Makers.
This year I'm going to have a little side project here. I love food. And I like to illustrate. So I'm doing an occasional series here where I will create digital sketches of favorite dishes, things I cook and things I eat. I hope you enjoy it. Starting with January 1...
