2-D Food (and see you at the MCA Zine Fair)
With every free second devoted to finishing my zine for next Sunday's MCA Zine Fair, the food blog is a little cupboard-bare at the moment, I admit.
I'm still scurrying around trying to complete the zine, but in the meantime, I thought I'd direct your eye to some cool food-related things my super-creative friends have done recently. Grace Lee, who designed the banner for this blog, has started whipping up this awesome series of 2-D food craft.
I don't even like finger buns but I am smitten with her paper version of it. I also love her baked bean (just one, so lonely), and shadow-casting apple. You can see more on her blog: the latest addition is a pair of neenish tarts.
Now for the shamelessly entrepreneurial bit: Grace's food art will be part of the stall I'm minding at the zine fair. Please drop by if you feel like adding a baked bean or jam tart to your shopping cart. Also on the table will be copies of my zine, Speak-easy #10, and the hugely awesome Tilted Page clip-art comic, by Jonathon Valenzuela – FBI DJ, Time Out writer and one of the funniest guys I know. The punchline-per-page ratio of his comic is pretty damn high.
Food-review status will resume shortly, once the deadline madness is over. I've got two cafe crushes I am excited to tell you about - that'll definitely happen soon. But, back to the zine grind.
If you're after a where-to-eat fix, I totally recommend the rundown of Sydney's best Japanese joints on the excellent Hello Sandwich blog. The accompanying illustration is for those reviews is by – guess who? – the ever-popular Grace Lee.
