River Cottage much more veg

Hugh-Fearnley-Whittingstall’s new River Cottage cookbook has just been published, illustrated by yours truly. I debuted a brand new illustration style, to keep the flavour of the illustrations I’ve done before for River Cottage, but adding a new dimension.I created a painted collage style, a bit reminiscent of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, but with thicker paper, so there’s a very definate shadow on the pages, to give the impression of depth.I worked with the art directer Lawrence Morton to come up with the theme for this book’s illustrations, which is ‘the preparation’ for cooking. So I focused on the tools and equipment in the kitchen…and also the preparation of the ingredients themselves. For example, how to cut them…and how to select them…This wonderful book is available from Amazon US here and Amazon UK here. It would make an excellent Christmas gift!
