This is a set of editorial illustrations for CNN international, for an article “Unique eats: 8 amazing meals that won’t be repeated” by James Durston. I’ve been given an article and two days to create visuals for it; each image illustrates a story behind someone’s extraordinary food experience.

I think I’ve managed to capture the essence of people’s stories, sometimes adding some other layers to it. I’m quite happy about Chilie earthquake lunch illustration as it has some Petrov-Vodkin / early cubism references. The editors were happy about the click rate (not sure about the numbers, but it was featured on the main CNN page and had over 100000 clicks in first couple of days).
