Editorial Illustrations in Watercolor – Farmers Market Theme

It is easy to be creative when you have pencil, brush, and watercolor right at your side. It was even easier for me after I visited our local farmers market and fresh idea popped into my head as fresh as their vegetables and fruits there.

I decided to imply my artist’s skills into editorial illustration design; and, I created this cute alphabet made of healthy and delicious veggies.

All of them, by the way are my favorite to eat.

First I’ve created three letters:
Peppery A
Beet – ery B
and Super Cute Bell Pepper – C:

The rest of the letters were just popping and popping for those  watercolor editorial illustrations as if they were waiting for me on the shelves of Farmers Market booths.

Having three very affordable farmers markets nearby, I created this sign that is quite important these days to support the local communities:

Then, one customer of mine asked me to create LOVE TO EAT sign for her kitchen decor. She ordered it on my illustrator website Irina Sztukowski Editorial Illustrations

And I was delighted to create another editorial illustration, Farmers Market, made of sweet radishes, cucumbers, beans, and celery 🙂

For vegan foods lovers, I’ve created a sign:

Basically, I’ve created whole alphabet and made it  possible for customers to order their own signs whatever they feel would look great at their Farmers Market booth, newspaper or magazine articles, cafe or restaurant decor; or, even in the kitchen interior:

All those signs and a cute alphabet for editorial illustrations are in my Food Illustrations Gallery.

Tasty Season – Migros Yogurt Labels

Ah what a tasty season the Spring is. My labels that I painted for Migros Company for their Saison brand are now on the shelves in Europe.
These yogurts’ flavors remind me about my childhood, when my grandma grew both Elderberries and Rhubarb in her garden. She loved making jam out of these berries and vegetables. If somebody that day would tell me that I will paint them one day for yogurt labels for a Swiss Company, I’d probably knit my eyebrows in disbelieve :0), but the Miss Serendipity works in some interesting ways, isn’t she?!
And now, I can tell firmly, I do love painting food illustrations for various merchandise and nowadays I have painted illustrations for jams, yogurts, marmalade, chutney, dressings, relishes, and many many other merchandises. As the matter of fact, they are shown in my gallery

What a great thing for an Artist to see her creations on the shelves of the stores! And even though, these yogurts are distributed for now in Europe only (particularly in Switzerland and France); and, it would be difficult to ship it to me to California; I am so happy and proud that my art is now live on these yummy labels.

Sweet and tasty Holiday Season opened with Apple Strudel and Gingerbread yogurts!

These two sweet and spicy still life paintings were born after I was contacted by a Swiss company for a creation of Yogurt Labels. The exciting project will contain several labels, including Apple Strudel.

 I cannot release yet the name of the company; but, I promise when the yogurts hit the European market stores’ shelves, I will post the photos of the illustrations and how they look on the jars. 

Each illustration is going to be unique. The composition will be different from the ones that can be seen above.

Just like an informal meeting where musicians play together in a Jam Session, my dear customer and I are working on a lengthy but absolutely enjoyable and creative project – A Jam Labels Session. Our first creations involve my Apricot Painting and White Peach painting. I am learning a ton of tricks with PhotoShop to clear the backgrounds and make the files appropriate for the labels. The colors for the labels should be rather bold and bright than containing an artistic realism with complimentary shadows, vanishing perspective, etc. The labels might be as small as 1″x1″ and they still should “read” the image and letters. 
Here are our fist attempts of the Jam Labels Project, which as you can see are definitely made with Love:
Yes, there is still so much to do and play with, but already, just by looking at them my mouth is watering and craving one of these delicious jams!
Stay tuned for more Jam Labels creations :0)

Long time forgotten I painted this still life several years ago for our favorite breakfast place here in Martinez, California. I am so glad that this small restaurant, Copper Skillet, stays in business surviving these difficult economical times. We don’t go out as often as we used to go; but, each time we decide to go we think about a local place. It keeps community ticking; therefore, we love to support those mom-and-pop.
