Collard Greens


Colorado Springs, Colorado, US


It's a surreal moment in adulthood when you start making your own versions of the comfort food your parents made for you growing up. Collard greens are that recipe. I got a loose recipe from my grandma over the phone while adding my own spin on things and these turned out so good. For the recipe illustration, I tried to use colors and patterns that nod to the 1930s and 1940s. I also used a script font that's elegant and a little hard to read which reminds me of my grandma's handwriting.
