Really Sweet!

A few months ago I was commissioned by the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library http://www.fdrlibrary.marist.edu/ to do caricatures of FDR, Eleanor and their dog Fala for them to reproduce onto certain items of merchandise. Mugs and tee-shirts was what I expected. What I did not expect was the packet of caricature chocolates arrived on my doorstep this morning!

Actually it's the caricatures printed in (I assume) edible icing on top of the chocolate. The reproduction is great. Kudos to the chocolatier, The Chocolate Canvas™.  http://www.thechocolatecanvas.com
The reproduction is just as good, if not better, than traditional prints on paper.

  I showed them to my son who is home for the summer from college. He was impressed, but thought it was a weird choice to print old people on chocolate. (He's not a history major, and to be fair, he had just woken up). I just need to keep people from eating them.

I'm am going to start participating in "Illustration Friday" a website where illustrators post work relating to a weekly theme. http://illustrationfriday.com/  This week's theme was "sweet".
