I designed a custom thank you card for my friend, chef extraordinaire, caterer, and cookbook author Jenn de la Vega who just released her first cookbook called Showdown Comfort Food, Chili & BBQ. It's available now, so pick it up on Amazon or your favorite local book seller. She wanted a card that matched the style of her book, so we worked together in creating this fun grilled steak illustration and design. We went through a couple variations before settling on this one. I had a blast working on it. I also created some patterns which I hope to share shortly!
Below are some early versions that weren't chosen, but show the process of this project.
