Las conservas de Catalina
Oh, no, what´s this, a photograph in lobstersquad? Quick, look away before your eyes burn.
Nah, come on, it´s all right.
Look closely and you´ll see that the labels are illustrated and lettered by yours truly.
You can also see what a lousy photographer I am. If I couldn´t draw, I couldn´t have a blog.
I made these labels for Catín, a friend who has always comissioned all sorts of things from me over the years. She has watercolours, prints, ceramic tiles, handmade books, really, all sorts. Since she´s also an enthusiastic cook and maker of preserves, it soon followed that I was requested to make some labels.
The great thing is, on top of my cash payment, I received a box of goodies, namely what you see: a jar of bonito in olive oil, another of plum jam, and the most ambrosial thing I´ve ever had in my life, quince jelly.
Aren´t you jealous?
