I was recently commissioned to do illustrations of pastries, (yes please!), found in Toronto patisseries for Toronto Life Magazine. I had a ton of fun, and got to paint some pastries I'd never heard of up until then. If I'd had more time, I would have gone out and did a little research beforehand.
You can find these illustrations in the newest issue of Toronto Life, (which is a particularly great issue because of the cover story written by Desmond Cole).
