Yay - Memories and a win!

I illustrated this recipe for All-American BBQ Bacon Cheeseburgers from Kraft for a recipe illustration contest held by Nate & Salli over at They Draw and Cook.

I had a lot of fun with this one because it brought back so many great memories of growing up. When I was little, my sisters and I would get a slice of Singles Kraft cheese while we watched Saturday morning cartoons, and I would break mine into little shapes like the stars in the illustration. And since I grew up at a camp, during the summer we would have bi-weekly cheeseburger cookouts using these exact ingredients. Our table often looked this way!

I was awarded a second place win which is a huge honor considering there were so many great submissions. Thanks so much to Kraft for all of their wonderful comments and to TDAC. Check it all out here:
