New Work: Indianapolis Monthly

My Illo done for Indianapolis Monthly

Inspirational piece from the CUTCO cook book published in 1961.

The top image is my illo for the Food section of Indianapolis Monthly.
The writer lamented the fact that when he tried to impress his friends by making cassolet he didn't know it took 5+ hours!
The Art director Margo Wininger requested a retro feel so I used a limited palette of black with yellow accents. This combo was used a lot in the 1950s + 1960s - have included an inspirational sample!
ps. I always find it kinda of ironic that this 1 colour technique was developed due to budget restraints with printing but we now use this limited palette by choice because it looks good!
