The Family Dinner
Laurie's book on family cooking and eating is more than just a recipe book - it was a manifesto for eating together as a family unit, whatever shape that takes!
Award-winning author, producer, environmental advocate and blogger, Laurie was also the wife of comedian Larry David, which is how I knew of her when Grand Central Publishing asked me to illustrate her book. I was delighted: I love food, and cooking, and moreover EATING, so the idea of drawing dinners, sandwiches, vegetables and everything else was an ideal brief.
That 'done-is-better-than-perfect' energy comes across in the book, I think!
The illustrations were made in pen and ink with some digital colour added, and I made busy endpapers too.
