Tropical Cookies Illustration

Tropical Cookies Illustration Here's an illustration I made for a recent post on Tasting Notes, Astor Wines & Spirits' blog on wine, spirits, cocktails and food. It's for a recipe of "Tropical Rum Cookies" that I put together for an in-store treat. Since staff isn't allowed to pour actual product, I instead chose to serve the alcohol to the customers in a different way - by baking them into cookies! I adapted a recipe of oatmeal cookies by adding rum-soaked dried fruit - and it was a smashing success! I normally don't love dried fruit in cookies, but I couldn't get enough of these.

The illustration is made with broad-tipped markers, one of my favorite mediums.
