& Magazine Filler Pieces

Issue 12 of & Magazine should be out very soon, and so here I will display a few filler pieces that should grace the pages of that fine periodical. 

These first few will accompany one of the many articles relating to Inns and Taverns in this issue. 

A mug and loaf of hard bread.

I return to the technique of wood graining with the board, and gave the cup/mug a simple crown motif, as well as a metallic shine. For the handle I wrapped it in leather for a better grip, one doesn't want to spill the mug you know.

Tossed in a quick fork for some more...er...flavor, and the loaf of hard bread with one end broken off completes the illo.

Cutting Board and cleaver.

Who doesn't like carrots! This illo is a simple fill piece the cleaver being the prominent subject matter with its steel shine and sharp edge. The carrot being secondary I tried to get the feel of the pieces in various configuration to show their 3-D-ness. 

Thanks for looking, comments always welcome.
