Patrick Dias & Janet Mac
My new favourite food!


Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
This began as a curiosity to dip our feet into the world of children's books. We set out to collaborate on a couple of illustrations to challenge ourselves to work together on a deeper level. Both our styles are vibrant and playful, so we aimed to make something that blended our own strengths in 2D and 3D design into a cohesive look, showing an interaction we wished we experienced as kids.

How was the illustration used:
This was created partly as styleframes for pitching as a children's book illustration style and for personal experimentation.

How did you make this work:
We wanted to create a story about embracing and sharing our differences through food. A 2D colour illustration was the foundation for the 3D environment, matching the skewed perspectives and proportions. The goal was to maintain a tactile quality to the 3D environment, capturing the essence of a handmade set.
