What's Cooking?


Computer Arts x D&AD Cover Competition


The problem: How can an illustration created for Computer Arts' new graduate issue convey the feeling of introducing bold, new talent.


This project was one of the final 8 in
the Computer Arts  x D&AD Cover Competition 2016.

“What’s cooking” is a colloquial phrase which encapsulates the sense that something is about to be created and happen. I chose
to base my illustration around the idea of this idiom; I created a miniature kitchen scene entirely out of paper, some markers, a lot of hot glue, and a little watercolor. The viewpoint into the kitchen allows the viewer to feel that they could step into it and create something fresh and exciting for themselves.
