Creative Showcase: The Best of Food

Food is terrific. The worst part about food illustrations is that you can’t just reach into the screen and take a bite out of whatever it is you’re seeing. But you know what? Food illustrations make us think about food and did you thinking about food is actually better for you than trying to repress those thoughts? Studies have shown that people who suppress their food thoughts are actually more likely to have cravings and binge eat later on.

There’s nothing wrong with sitting at your desk and daydreaming about that perfect bite of a crisp and cinnamon-y apple pie on a cool summer’s night. Or driving home while imagining the most delicious slice of deep-dish pepperoni pizza you can imagine. And if thoughts of food aren’t enough for you, you’ll simply have to enjoy these heavenly illustrations.

You can see all of the food images on the Directory of Illustrations website by using our new specialty search function.
