katebrennanhall#100dayproject Step 1. Cut celery up for lunch. Notice lovely pattern at base of stalks. Step 2. Ink up celery and create black flowers. Step 3. Decide to cut up color proofs from cookbook I illustrated. Step 4. Play against the traditional bright flowers/basic vase. Flip it. Step 5. Notice the *movement* created by the flowers and enhance it. Step 6. Cut out little kitchen elements from cookbook (see No.3) Smiling after all this fun: #katebrennanhall #collage #cookbookillustration #happystilllife #playtime #foodillustration #illustration

In response to Ben Franklin’s quote “…if you can keep it.”
Yes, Ben my sisters and I choose to keep it for ourselves, our children and future generations.
