For those that know me, I mean really know me, it will come as no surprise when I tell you about a project I’ve been working on, one that has nothing to do with special educational needs, writing or even that of autism, but one that involves me doing something else I love.
I’ve actually been commissioned to create an illustration that is set to feature in an online Rainbow cookbook.

Once food bloggers had created their recipes they were passed on to us along with the colour we had been appointed!
The recipe I was appointed was Meatloaf Cupcakes with Roasted Beetroot Mash, by Mike at Mikes Baking. The colour we had been appointed was Purple.
I also received a photograph of Mikes finished recipe (see the above) to help me on my mission to create the perfect illustration.

I was given a period of two weeks and a deadline of the 23rd March 2012 (Yes, I hate deadlines). Thankfully, I finished ahead of schedule, finally finishing this morning. I sent it off with bated breath and yes, they loved it.
So, here it is, my illustration for the
