Apples are full of stories!
So I haven’t yet decided if there’s going to be a part 3 to this. I feel like I have a little more to say but I’ve been having the hardest time articulating it, so we’ll see. But this was part of what was bugging me about the whole conversation. I was at Bryn Mawr to talk about food and food illustration and food comics, and specifically how images of food are almost never designed to factually represent the food as an object – they’re designed to tell the story of the food as an experience. A history, a recipe, a memory, a meal – it’s all about communicating the many layers of what a particular food means to us as humans, and that goes far beyond the mere object nature of the apple.
