So, a quick caveat: we’ve been doing some design work for Atwood, so I’m not exactly impartial. But today was the first time I’d ever been down there, and it was an absolute treat. My office is in Rogers Park, and I live in Logan Square, so I rarely get downtown for anything, much less tasty meals. Much less mussels for a Monday work lunch. Mussel Monday!

Boy do I love eating little sea creatures, huh? You’d think someone who loved eating seafood so much would move, you know, closer to the sea. Sigh.

Once again I am left mulling over the fact that I love drawing food, that it feels almost as much of a treat as it does to eat it. That I draw food in careful, loving detail – much, much more detail than I use when I draw myself. That’s probably telling, huh?
