Hello everyone!!! Sorry for the radio silence on our end – we’ve been very busy planning fun things, hosting our swaps, and reaching out to new artists. Hopefully in the coming months we’ll be able to kick it up a notch. It is our 2nd birthday in April, and we could not be more excited! In honor of Ten Paces turning two we are honored to partner with the amazing Chronicle Books to give some presents away to YOU, our readers!
The first of our giveaways is an amazing book by Claudia Pearson! “Drawing Food” is a drawing journal for food lovers, this guided sketchbook “invites users to draw—and thereby appreciate—delicious and wholesome food every season of the year”. The first half of the book has a bunch of super fun drawing techniques and exercises to hone your food-drawing skills, and second half becomes a diary of your favorite meals, foods, utensils, and recipes! If you thought instagraming your food was fun, imagine how cherished your illustrations will be!
If you’re not familiar with the work of Claudia Pearson already take a moment to visit her website, or shop. Claudia is known in recent years for her beautiful food drawings which have been applied to everything from stationery and t-shits, to tote bags and kitchen towels! Outside of dominating Pinterest boards world-wide, Claudia has done illustration work for the New York Times, The New Yorker, Elle, and has multiple book publications under her belt! Her shop is bursting with amazing foodie themed art – I have my eye on her new Market Tote!
Entering this contest is easy as pie (see what I did there?), all you have to do is use our fine rafflecoptor app below and your name is thrown into the digital hat! Additional entries can be made by sharing your food drawings with us! We’ll pick our favorites for the blog – upload your pics to twitter or instagram with the hashtag #tenpacesdrawingfood for additional chances to win! You can follow my food drawing adventure on the blog starting tomorrow I’m going to try and use the journal every day to doodle some dishes!
