Hand’s up who likes a crumpet!? Well, these are not normal crumpets, these are gourmet offerings from some of the Uk’s hottest Restaurants. I was commissioned by The Stylist magazine to illustrate these delicious treats and I can confirm I was very hungry as I drew….I’m planning a crumpet tour at some point this year to sample ALL of these!
The wonderful Hoppers of London is a Sri Lankan restaurant run by the successful JKS team. I was taken on board to illustrate their main website, and then on the strength of that also the cocktail menu and Raksha mask's (which to adorn the walls.)
The food is delicious, as I was lucky enough to try, and the team wanted to reflect the fun energy of their cooking in the illustrations. We drew on Sri Lankan comics for inspiration resulting in a fun feel and I produced for the team illustrated recipe cards, send in a PR pack. I've been back for more hoppers and curry since and also gave a small talk about illustration to the staff members who attentively listened to me and then drew their own masterpieces.
