The Great Peach Expedition

The Great Peach Expedition   8"x10"  Acrylic on paper 

I've written and illustrated a story for Ardent Magazine, on the joys of picking peaches at a U-Pick and taking them home to create a bowl of comforting Peaches and Cream. 

Plus the accompanying illustration was a blast to dream-up. Showcasing the necessities for any proper peach hunt. Binoculars, compass, and map. The inspiration behind it was Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom meets hungry fruit enthusiasts. 

This was such fun to do, and every endearing word I said about the fruit, I meant.

p.s. I also snuck a recipe inside the story to make your own Peaches and Cream (aka: Summer in a Bowl)
