BURGERS BURGERS BURGERS BURGERS | Watercolour Illustrations

The idea of a burger as an iconic image is something I've come to accept and understand. I don't even eat red meat. I can't recall the last time I sunk my teeth into a bread bun filled with a juicy meat patty, but I assume it was long before burgers became such an important part of our dining society. But I get it. They've come a long way from the frozen isle in the supermarket, and now any self respecting restaurnat has its own take on what is essentially, a meat sandwich.

Regardless, they make pretty amazing subject matters to paint. This was a project for New York Magazine, to paint 15 "signature" burgers from around the world. The selection you see above contains burgers from the US, Australia, Zanzibar, Portugal, Japan, Afghanistan and more!- but can you guess which is which?

See the illustrations in situ on the New York Magazine website.

    1. Thanks so much Lynne, me too! I've had to paint a lot of meat lately it seems, but I'm trying to appreciate the visual appeal even if I can't appreciate the taste!
