THE ILLUSTRATOR + THE COOK Our journey merged 4 years ago. It begins like any good Love Story begins, with flowers and a letter that says, "run away with me, baby." and, so it goes. We reached the tops of Northern California mountains, winded down unpaved roads in a old blue bug. We met the depths of the deep south. Saw fall turn in Georgia and a unexplainable snow in winter. We floated on a boat in Hawaii... He wrote recipes and cooked our catches, I played my guitar, sang him songs and illustrated pictures. After 4 years... I see the correlation to his art and mine, both are creative, apart of us and painted differently, intruiging different senses. taste buds and sight, the smell and feeling a picture can evoke. The song sends a pang to the heart, the heat of a low country boil the burns the tongue. It makes observer feel, it makes the creator alive.
