So, I illustrated this short fictional story for a literary magazine about a gay chef who built his fame and reputation and public persona around his gayness. When, in truth, he was actually straight - and he ends up falling in love with another woman (who ends up being a lesbian). Oh, what a world we live in!
As far as the two spot illustrations - my initial idea was the eggs and sausage/bacon, because i thought it was symbolic of the two different sexes. But the author really wanted the dish to be one of the ones mentioned in the story - so i ended up drawing lamb shank potatoes and string beans. I'm still a fan of my first drawing, but thats how things go sometimes.
