It’s All in the Sauce by Kristen Kish, Top Chef winner
Posted 2 months ago and submitted by Lisa Wee | Share link:

I have been working with the acclaimed chef, Top Chef winner, author, and TV personality Kristen Kish. She is on a mission to help kids — especially those in minority communities — go on the journey of self-discovery, using the medium that was so essential to her own path: cooking. My role was to character design the main character and other characters within, plus all the interior illustrations for the journal. The process was exciting because the main character is gender neutral and based loosely upon Kristen’s life. What I love about this project is all proceeds will go to WhatsintheMirror? in support of mental wellness for LGBTQIA+ communities of color and suicide prevention.

Your vision for the book is unbelievable. I am just in awe of some of the things you came up with. The dog mapping of walking through the house and hangers in the closet. It is truly magical. (Holly Bonner - Blind mom monster detective) Everyone loves your enchanting artwork! The colors are wonderful. Our readers will love looking at the happy children and all the details. Thank you, Lisa, for a GREAT job on this project!! (Ladybug magazine)
