One of the things I love the most about summer is the summer foods. I can't wait for tomatoes to be in season.!I swear for weeks on end, I eat only tomatoes, bread, feta cheese and olive oil in various combinations. Soup, baked, sauce, raw, fried, grilled, marinated... and like that in an endless loop. At the end of last summer I spent about a week drying tomatoes and preserving them in olive oil and garlic so I have them well into the winter. Apart from my beach holidays, that was the most precious week of summer of 2011... yes, I am wild and exciting that way.
But to be honest these illustrations weren't for this post. I was pitching them for a menu design I am doing. My boss was laughing how whenever there is something new to be done, my answer is " How about we go with an illustration?" . Well, it didn't pass this time but I still like them so decided to give them a life beyond an unused folder on my computer.
