As part of an illustration-based Facebook Group called Illostories, I created an illustrated hot chocolate recipe to go with the winter theme of the month of January. I intentionally chose the size for the The They Draw & Cook website so I could also submit to their site. This recipe has the perfect amount of spice and chocolate to warm you up on a cold day, and I loved being able to incorporate illustrated ingredients and Aztec-inspired patterns and shapes in the background to give it a cohesive and illustrated feel. This was all created digitally using an Apple pencil.
