FOOD SKETCHES is an illustration project by Seattle-born illustrator Erin Jang, also an art director & graphic designer living in NYC.

In this project, Jang presents us with a series of abstract graphical representations in colorful vector shapes of dishes that she has tasted in different restaurants. The goal is to creatively share her experiences of food as a way of giving recommendations on what restaurants people can visit.

This is without a doubt a good example of a work of graphic reinterpretation which proves again the ‘Bauhausian’ design maxim coined by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe: Less is more.
