Rootitoot portrait for Chatelaine

I illustrated a portrait of Ruth “Rootitoot” McCusker for Chatelaine magazine. Ruth was an Instant Pot guru who recently passed away. I learned a lot about Instant Pots while researching items for the background. I’ve never used one, but a lot of people are passionate about them…and apparently you can make cheesecakes in them!

Portraits for Commercial Observer

At one point my drafting table looked like this:

 

And here are the final portraits:

And don’t they look lovely in the spread!
