It Looks Like We Have a Winner!

After much deliberation, we've chosen the winner (from the top 15 submissions) of our latest showcase challenge "Illustrate What's on the Mind of a Chef". The honor goes to Judy Wong, whose illustration of planet Earth split-open revealing all kinds of tasty ingredients resonated with both our audience and our judges. In her own words, the "Fun part of a chef daydreaming: cutting out your slice of home and seeing what flavors come out! That, or wondering how to eat the world."

Congratulations Judy!

But wait there is more! We'd also like to highlight and acknowledge Meena Murugappan’s submission (seen below) as an honorable mention. We fell in love with the attention to detail in her piece. Kudos to all!

Anthropological Drawings from 1903 of Kachinas from the Hopi Culture

native american hopi drawing

This find is an oldie but a goodie! It’s always super cool to see hand drawn illustrations from way back when. In 1903, a 30 year old Hopi man named Kutcahanauu, also called White-Bear, was hired by an American anthropologist to record different kachinas (spirits revered in Hopi and Pueblo culture). When I think of drawings of religious icons, I don’t expect them to look as fun as these, so Kutcahanauu’s uniquely Hopi style came as an awesome surprise. His drawings look right at home amongst the fun, spontaneous art we normally share, don't they? You can click here to read about the cultural significance of kachinas and see more drawings.

Doodling with a purpose: How to create art that speaks

Those lines you just left on paper – are those really just doodles?

Could it be more than just meandering lines that you've mindlessly put together? Mindless not in the way it was created, but mindless in the way how easily our minds shifts from one thought to the next, perplexing, changing, evolving and never the same. Mindless in weight, in troubles and in spirit? A line that solidifies our constant state of flux, by being there – a constant. A reminder. A mark left in time that captures the essence of what makes drawing such a personal affair.

What happens beyond the meandering? At what point does a drawing become art? Or is every doodle a work of art in itself? I'd like to think it’s more the latter, but at the same time, sometimes not all doodles are made equal – sometimes it's nothing more than it is. And yet some are more than they truly show. An image, a still, captured in time. A thought. A fleeting emotion. Raw. Keep reading...
