Anatomy of a Chocolate Box

20 May

A small, indie, underground film once said “life is like a box of chocolates you never know what you’re gonna get.” Well they clearly never saw my NEW Awesome Chocolate Box Guide! Complete with all the classics, such as: prize chocolates, drifters, fillers and of course the duds! Let me know what you think of if you’d add any ūüôā

Cheers,

The Zombie Fix

22 Apr

One of the perks of being a barista, is that the daily essential pick-me-up, known as coffee, is brewed every morning into our routine. Now if you truly share this drip passion for crafting the ultimate joe, then you’ve realized getting to esspress yo’self at that ultimate level can be a real grind. AKA it’s a patient journey mastering the craft of coffee. So below I’ve extracted what I’d like to call the “Master Barista”; Purging the world of sleep deprivation, one shot at a time! Hopefully you’ll give it a swirl and let me know how it goes down!

 

Discover the cure!

Discover the cure!

For anyone that cares about my artistic process (you’ve made it this far you might as well down the whole cup), I’ll fill you in! The pencil, sharpener and table are all actually mine and not some Photoshop trickery. I tried to incorporate my natural setting (As I photograph my sketches instead of scanning them (I’m too poor to afford a¬†scanner (Wow triple brackets!))) while still trying make the image look clean and professional. Then I coloured it in with Photoshop!

Enjoy!

The British Baking Revolution

29 Jul

After two months at my new job at Euphorium Bakery, I must say, I’ve caught the bug. Besides working I’ve been writing a lot of blogs (See multiple, multiple other posts), and well honing my craft of the pencil. Well it seems my two realities, job and pencil have finally met in an awesome collaboration in what I’m calling the British Baking Revolution.

This was actually inspired by one of Euphorium Bakery’s official slogans, and got me thinking to what would happen if even the bread caught the bug? I tried to feature every loaf we have, from the bagel, challah, baguette, sourdough, muesli and so forth, enjoy! I was proud to see that not only did my friends like it, but it was posted on my company’s FB page!

Bonne Appétit!

How to Eat Spaghetti like a Champ!

5 Jul

It’s come to my attention that many individuals do not like Spaghetti because they DO NOT know how to eat it. Well being the expert on all things period. I’ve decided to draw a demonstration on how I’ve learnt to eat spaghetti.

The below method can also be done on a spoon, but for the record it is a Myth that all Italians carry a spoon in their front pocket (Refer to drawing). So don’t be the fool in prison who can’t eat his last meal (a bowl of spaghetti) because no spoon was available. And don’t cut it either…. if it was meant to be cut, they’d sell shorter spaghetti. Do you chop a hot dog ina bun into bite size pieces before eating it? Do you slice fries in a poutine? Man up! Or Women up! And if this was our last prison meal, then let’s die with dignity and save on dishes!
