The Washington Post Cover Illustration

Project Description

We were thrilled that the Washington Post approached Torie Partridge to illustrate the cover of the Thanksgiving 2013 special edition of their Food Section, and even more thrilled to see the cover in print. For this piece, we illustrated eight classic Thanksgiving dishes for an article that explored the history of how these foods came to be Thanksgiving classics. The illustration was completed in Copic pen and watercolor, with the type in purely watercolor.

Cherry Blossom Creative won an award of excellence from the Society for News Design for this cover, in the category of special sections.
