Food Pyramid

Medium & Finishing
  • Donut forget the importance of good nutrition

    In Food Pyramid, I have triangulated my diet with precision! Six donuts stand snack-ready, capped with a fresh cupcake.

    But creating this image wasn't a piece of cake, friends. It required arduous trips to the donut store and taste testing for quality control. (It also required bracing these donuts together with toothpicks without smooshing them - a task more difficult than it might sound.)

  • It was actually challenging to get the donut tower with the right balance of colours and textures. The yellow one dominated the entire scene, so I determined that its best placement was at the top, to pull your eye in. I had originally planned this scene without the cupcake, but decided that the pyramid was more aesthetically pleasing with the capstone cake - especially with its intriguing shadow on the background.
