Illustrator Wendy Ding Serves Up Food Garnished With Pinup Girls

Wendy Ding Illustration

Wendy Ding Illustration

Illustrator Wendy Ding knows a thing or two about tasty dishes. Combining pinup girls with food is simply, pure genius. Ladies - if you want to know the way to a man's heart - ask Wendy Ding. The great thing about these illustrations is that they really make your mouth water - and not just because they have beautiful girls in them. With her unique stye and exceptional talent, Wendy transforms digitally illustrated food into mouth watering morsels. The colors and the detail make these treats look so yummy. Take a look at that candy apple, and the ice cream. Those doughnuts will make you want to run down to Dunkin' Donuts and scoff down about a dozen glazed, little, ring-shaped delights. Don't you feel like you're taking in calories merely by looking at her work?

The beauty of these illustrations (no pun intended) is that they are so playful. You can tell Wendy has fun creating her art. Notice the use of patterns in each of the pieces - some are more subtle than others. She also adds a gloss and sheen that makes the illustrations pop and somehow look sweeter - like cavity sweeter. Do you get that sense too?

Born in China, Wendy was no stranger to whimsical cartoons, stickers and endless picture books growing up. A brief stay in the UK just before her teens introduced her to Barbie and the western world. Now based in Toronto, Canada, her inspiration comes from fashion, music, pin-up girls, and food. Her specialty is digital illustration using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.

Cartoon style illustrators don't get enough recognition online. As you can clearly see from Daniel's work these illustrators are every bit as talented as illustrators working in other styles. Daniel approaches his craft with the intent to create artwork that is unique and memorable, pushing the limits of his creative thinking and technical skills.

Daniel is a vector man - meaning he works primarily in Adobe Illustrator. The great textures he adds to his work, together with the many layers of color, give his illustrations a rare depth and richness that isn't found in some vector art.
