Tonight is the first night of Hanukkah! It's Latke Time!
They Draw and Cook is a great website started by a couple of illustrators featuring recipe illustrations by artists. It's become hugely popular and a book is in the works. They've also teamed up with Food Network's blog The FN Dish for a contest featuring holiday recipes. Each day during December a favorite recipe will be posted on Food Network's blog, and TDAC will post many of the 250+ recipes on their blog. At the end of the month the top 4 recipes will will posted and cash prizes awarded.
This illustration is my contribution to the contest. My family tells me every year on Hanukkah that I should open a Latke restaurant. I hope you like my illustration as much as my family likes my latkes! I'm not holding my breath that I'll be a winner of the contest. It'd be great to make it to Food Network's blog or even to have it posted on They Draw and Cook's website. Heck, I'm just patting myself on the back for taking the time to follow through and get it done!
