Yokos Microwave Mochi Recipie by Nytrinhia Yokos Microwave Mochi Recipie by Nytrinhia
Intro to Illustration Assignment:
Black and White Cookbook recipie.

Requirements:
-Black and White, no gray or color
-minimum of two characters
-"Fast Food"
-2 point perspective
-8.5"x11" format

Gee, doesn't this recipie look familiar...

I decided to do the recipie that my grandmother gave me, microwave mochi. And yes, they do print it on the side of the box, BUT this is different from what's on there, and it also has some tips and tricks learned from my grandmother and so totally not on a box.

Also, the name I use here at college is Yoko, since my real name is so common it's no longer funny and barely anyone is capable of pronouncing my middle name. So, I use my grandmother's name: Yoko. Hence the title. Yoko, the original source, and myself, the one who wrote it all down for you to enjoy.

The inking was done by hand with ArtLine and Copic pens. The sky tone was done in Photoshop using Computones and the text was placed in Illustrator, with the font coming from various sources (Body Copy: Century Gothic, Title and subtitle: Keep on Truckin' )

WHY YOKO, WHY!!???!

Why did you give me the recipe with out the pretty picture!?!

Anywho, I've decided I'll make some Mochi for my Japanese class, but found out my professor doesn't like it. She doesn't like the texture. But I'm still making some, but I think I'll use chocolate instead. I don't really know really, I just might make red bean like last time.

Strawberries are also good X3 if you take whipped cream and put it on the strawberries and freeze it right before you wrap it in mochi, it's realllllllly good :3

That's good to know. Does that also help with the moister problem of the strawberries as well?

I'll have to contact my friend and use her freezer than.

Yes, actually it does. But you have to do it fast or it will melt and be a big mess.

Yeah this looks different than the one I tried, I didn't like mine too much. I took this exact same class! I find that to be exciting for some reason to see an assignment that I've done before. ;P [link]

Awesome illustration! :heart:
