A Patriotic Banner, A New Illustrator

Clear your histories everyone (or your cache or your cookies or whatever it takes), reload the site and prepare to be blown away by the new banner. Yes, this is the work of our new illustrator Lindy Groening (see her site here). Lindy comes to us from the Bay Area; she’s a designer by day for a big corporation and by night she makes whimsical drawings and paintings often featuring kitchen-related items. She enjoys hiking, baking, gardening and taking weekend road-trips with her husband. And we enjoy her right back: thanks Lindy for such an excellent first showing; and thanks to Leah, of course, for putting it all in place and to Justin for webbing it up old school. Team Amateur Gourmet needs to compete at the Olympics…. we’re fierce.

A New Banner, Illustrator Wanted

Clear your cache, friends, and enjoy this month’s new banner and color scheme! Thanks to Leah (the designer), Justin (the web guy), and Erin (the illustrator) who, sadly, retires as our illustrator this month. Which leads to the following:

Hey, have you ever wanted to make an Amateur Gourmet banner? We’re looking for someone who knows Illustrator but isn’t, necessarily, an actual “illustrator.” Leah says: “Enough to know how to manipulate vector images gotten from iStockphoto and we can drop them into Photoshop.” If this at all makes sense to you and sounds appealing, please shoot me an e-mail at amateurgourmet AT gmail DOT com.
