Nearly a year ago, David Meldrum, successful illustrator and graphic designer, set himself an unusual artistic and culinary challenge. Starting on15th June 2010, he decided to illustrate everything that he ate or drank, every day, for a year. And so it was The Food Illustrator was born. David chose to illustrate his food using acrylic, collage, watercolour, pen and ink, sometimes in its raw form,or on the plate but often in its packaging. The result is an impressive visual diary, and the information revealed therein is strangely intimate. The Food Illustrator project acts not only as a record of what David has consumed, but also an historical record of today’s food related trends, packaging, design and typography.
