Top Chefs – Honolulu Magazine

Hawaiian Chefs

Aloha! These happy chefs were drawn for the fantastic Honolulu Magazine. The restaurant guide appeared in my mailbox the other day – too bad all these restaurants are over 5,000 miles away, the food looks and sounds amazing!

It was great to get the opportunity to work with Honolulu Magazine. It’s a beautiful magazine and they use a good amount of illustration which is always a good thing. I also got to work with an incredibly fun and energetic art director who used Hawaiian phrases to begin and end emails. You just can’t go wrong with a combination of all those things.

I have a lot of new work up on my Portrait page on my website, as well as the other portfolio sections. Take a look!

    Hey, Joel!

    I got that same issue in the mail, I have an illustration in their September issue so the art director sent me the August issue. The food does look crazy good, nice work!
