They Draw and Cook is a blog featuring inspired illustrated recipes and food art. Cooked up by professional illustrators Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell, the idea blossomed while the two were on a family vacation and Nate threw together a pasta dish based on a meal he once had in Berlin. Said dish included figs. Salli bought the figs. She began painting them. Food fused with art. From there the pair set out to create an illustrated recipe book, which also became a blog featuring yummy artwork by talented artists all around the world. A new delicious post is added daily and there’s now a separate Kids Draw and Cook blog for aspiring food lovin’ artists 16 and under. Bon Appétit!

I’m diggin’ Carl Kleiner’s provocative photography installations. I love how his edgy humor shines through distinctly with each piece, and how he incorporates graphic elements and traditionally flat shapes into a 3-dimensional plane.

Matthew Sporzynski is a talented paper-craft artist whose imaginative creations have graced many a cover and interior page of Real Simple magazine. Matthew gracefully transforms a 2-dimensional medium into living 3-dimensional space through his flawless portrayal of food, fashion, travel, and lifestyle concepts. His art is cheerful, colorful, and often positively delicious—he makes his paper foods look so tempting! You know you’ve got something special when you can construct a paper ice cream cone so that it drips, or make paper curtains sway in the wind. Plus, his paper clouds, waves, bubbles, and chocolates are simply breathtaking as well!
“LucyandBart is a collaboration between Lucy McRae and Bart Hess described as an instinctual stalking of fashion, architecture, performance and the body. They share a fascination with genetic manipulation and beauty expression. Unconsciously their work touches upon these themes, however it is not their intention to communicate this. They work in a primitive and limitless way creating future human shapes, blindly discovering low – tech prosthetic ways for human enhancement.”

“I like to focus on the small nitty gritty details of people’s everyday existences; from passing gossip and menial everyday tasks to unkempt hair and chocolate wrappers that have missed the bin. I gather them all up in my head like a giant scrapbook, and bring them into my work, conserving them in some sort of form before they are past recollection.”—Sanna Dyker
