Autumnal Illustrated Menu for Nomadic Chefs
As you may remember from an earlier blog post, I have previously worked with Fleur Colvile, founder of Nomadic Chefs to design an illustrated menu. Here is a brief re-cap:
Nomadic Chefs is a company that makes entertaining extraordinary by bringing professional chefs into your home so that you and your dinner guests can relax whilst enjoying restaurant quality food.
I am delighted to share my latest creation for Nomadic Chefs- an illustrated, autumnal menu header, which features fresh, seasonal produce.
I loved working with Fleur on this project, it was fabulous to work on an autumnal brief actually at the beginning of autumn, when there was quite literally inspiration all around me! All I needed to do was to go for a walk through the woods and look at the colours of the leaves changing on the trees. Local farmers markets, allotments, plus gardening and food magazines I spotted in supermarkets and newsagents were brimming with seasonal food and the prefect ingredients for an autumnal colour palette.
I used gouache paint for the coloured sections of the illustrated menu, with pen and ink depicting the quirky, black and white nomadic chef.
