The work above is that of Lucy Engelman, and Illinois based illustrator, whom I discovered somewhere in one of my many rabbit hole adventures clicking around the internet. Maybe it was here, not sure. Lucy appears to be inspired by nature and food and whimsy, three things I can really get behind. Her watercolor illustrations grace the pages of Acquired Taste Magazine, Eat Boutique and a host of other culinary outlets.
Even better is that Lucy is not the only Engelman doing cool things with food and nature. Her sister Casey has a lovely food blog called Bits of Yum and younger sister Kirby is a beekeeper. How 'bout that! I'd like to think my offspring will be so culinarily inclined.
You can find more of Lucy on her Tumblr page and if you want some illustrations for your collection, check out her Etsy shop, Pocket Tiger.
