Illustration, Fairytales and Food

On my daily internet wanderings I just discovered Yelena Bryksenkova on Etsy.  She’s an American illustrator originally from Russia.  I LOVE her work.  Her style attracted me right away.  She’s got confident black outlines, a muted color palette and a personal way of drawing people that fascinates me.  You can definitely see her background in her work. And then there her subject matter: Fairytales of course but also people in everyday settings.  The care in every little details makes even the most ordinary setting seam special and cared for.

As I browsed her website I came across another reason to love this artist.  In collaboration with Lucie Cash she has illustrated a cookbook called Fairytale Food!  Combining my 2 favorite things in the world I think this book is genius idea and I hope the recipes live up to my high standard.
