There’s a thin line between comics and illustration, and They Draw and Cook mostly falls on the side of illustration, but their art sure is gorgeous and worth a look.
The site was created by the team of Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell, who got the idea for an illustrated cookbook while on a family vacation. Eventually the project morphed into a blog, with way more entries than a mere paper cookbook could hold.
Recipes are organized into thirteen categories, including drinks, side dishes, and a massive holiday section. The art styles for each recipe range from the more simple and abstract to things that are more detailed and realistic, using a variety of techniques and media. A few even skirt the line into a more comic-like style. Regardless of their style or recipe, most of the pieces are simply gorgeous, and I can’t wait to see the book when it comes out.
