Joël Penkman Food Paintings

If you are dieting or cutting out sugar then my apologies for this post because it will most certainly ruin all of the good work you've been doing lately. :) These fine art food paintings from graphic designer and painter Joël Penkman are simply delicious. I think the candy canes are my favorite followed by the donuts... so pretty to see food like this. Joël Penkman Food Paintings

Joël studied Fine Arts at Canterbury University in New Zealand and received first class honors in graphic design, no small achievement! After finishing, a move to the UK began with working for companies but now Joël's life is purely freelance and with clients in Manchester that are highly regarded such as True North, Music, Like a River and Barraclough Associates so life is good and freelance was definitely the best path for Joël to have taken.

I love these fine art portraits of food - especially the sweets - I can see these as repeat illustrations on wrapping paper and fabric, can't you?
