These illustrations were a year long process. My senior project was to create something that I would be proud of at the end of the year. I chose to create illustrations to accompany recipes with a friend of mine. As individuals our projects must be able to stand on it's own, so in this viewing you will only see the drawings I drew. My first idea what to create a book that involved different culture and traditions. For each month there are different holidays or traditions around the world that people do not know about, my fascination was to combine them in one publication. I draw these images in a 9 by 12 sketch book with a pencil and then edited them in photo shop to make them black and white. Some of there images were from the internet because there were certain images I that had to be drawn to accompany a particular tradition. For the month of March I had to draw the Welsh Dragon, I could not draw another dragon that was not the symbol of the Welsh. Even though some of the drawing had to be drawn exactly from the tradition or holiday, some of the drawings I drew from my mind that I felt went will with each page.
