They Draw and Cook:
The art world intersects with the food community at They Draw & Cook, a clever blog started earlier this year by sibling design and illustration team Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell (together they run Studio SSS
). Each day, They Draw & Cook features a new recipe illustration by a practicing artist, illustrator, or designer. The recipes vary in both style and content and are submitted from all over the world.
Twaggies, turn your tweets into pics.
Take random weird tweets and turn them into even weirder visuals. Twaggies, a website by Kiersten Essenpreis
, features illustrations by the extraordinary @K_Essenpreis
. (Essen is the German verb for “to eat” and preis means “praise.” So you better leave some nice comments for her or she’ll twag you most unfavorably.) The other half of the team is David Isreal
, who can’t draw a stick figure much less a twaggie, but does all the other stuff for the blog and hit on the idea for it in the first place.
Three additional twaggers have contributed in the past – @yaelbt
