I created the illustrations using Illustrator. I wanted a minimalist style but I wanted the drawing to have some detail to them. I used varying line thickness to make the drawings pop a little. And I backed up the illustrations with a solid block of colour that is slightly misplaced in regards to the illustrations, I thought that helped give a rough and rustic style. I used orange and a dull yellow as I felt they went well together, and looked right for a cookbook.
