Oh boy




Talk about crazy days lately. My hard drive died. Just up and died with not much warning so I managed to back-up current client work but nothing else. I would not wish it on my worst enemy. So I've missed some Illustration Friday but I'm back now! This week is "Opposites" and for some reason I was having an awful time coming up with anything I wanted to do. So I went to my trusty old retro cookbooks (I collect them - fun stuff!) and found some cool ice cream recipes and that was it.The background is a scan of the recipes and this is the yummy photo!
