art as food

Inktober #18: Cooking

Harry done with Dudley’s shit, year 1. Book purists will point out that the number of presents in the book is different but I can only think of the perfection that is the delivery of that line in the movie.

I DON’T CARE HOW BIG THEY ARE!

the new semester is coming up in a couple of days!!! I’m interested to see what the rest of my second year in poly has in store for me and I hope it pans out well! (with new spreads too) 💌

since I haven’t posted in a really long time (like my last spread was in August), here is a pink-tinted spread from the last few days of my vacation! 

How did your vacation go? 🍁

Ogni tanto ripenso ad una puntata di un programma sulla street art che vidi tempo fa. Il “conduttore”, anche lui artista, era andato in Palestina per fare un murales sul muro della Striscia di Gaza. Molti artisti da tutto il mondo hanno fatto lo stesso. Pure Banksy e altri ugualmente famosi. Quando ha chiesto ad un collega locale come mai gli artisti palestinesi non lo facessero, lui gli rispose dicendo: “Ma tu adorneresti le catene che ti rendono schiavo? Questo muro non si merita niente”.

Dopo questo, il conduttore ci riflette un po’ su e decide sì di fare il graffito, ma di cancellarlo subito dopo.

Interview: Ash

Today we’re joined by Ash. Ash is a wonderful young baker who has a passion for food. They enjoy cooking, though they don’t do it as much as they’d like. They have such a love and passion for food, as you’ll soon read. My thanks to them for taking the time to participate in this interview.

WORK

Please, tell us about your art.

I bake food, generally for my friends. I bake something different each week, generally something sweet, and take them in (if my family don’t get there first!!)

What inspires you?

Finding new things and trying new foods! They give me ideas of what to bake and what flavors work together, for example recently I discovered a recipe for white chocolate and basil mouse, which I was sure wouldn’t work but as intrigued to try it. (it works really well by the way)

What got you interested in your field?  Have you always wanted to be an artist?

I used to bake with my mum when I was younger which is what got me started on baking. I wanted to be a chocolatier when I was young, however baking is now a hobby and I will probably go into a maths related field rather than art.

Do you have any kind of special or unique signature, symbol, or feature you include in your work that you’d be willing to reveal?

My signature dishes are my vegan brownies and my chocolate orange cupcakes – the recipes are very well guarded!

What advice would you give young aspiring artists?

Sometimes stuff goes wrong. Cakes collapse, you add too much baking powder, you burn them. So what? Make it again. You’re first attempt at something shouldn’t be your last. Keep trying, if you’re having fun it’s worth spending time over.

ASEXUALITY

Where on the spectrum do you identify?

I’m panromantic asexual

Have you encountered any kind of ace prejudice or ignorance in your field?  If so, how do you handle it?

I’ve not experienced any prejudice, as I am at school with some very tolerant accepting people, however there is a lot of ignorance. So many people don’t understand what it is and I’ve had to explain many times what asexual means.

What’s the most common misconception about asexuality that you’ve encountered?

That I just haven’t found the right person yet, and because I’m young that I’ll grow out of it.

What advice would you give to any asexual individuals out there who might be struggling with their orientation?

Follow some ace positive blogs; this really helped me to accept that I wasn’t alone, that I was valid and not broken. Know that it’s also ok to change your labels!! I used to think I was bi, then pan, before I realized I was ace. I may find later down the line that I’m demi or something else entirely, and that’s 100% OK!! Let yourself explore and don’t be afraid of being wrong its part of growing within yourself.  

Some asexual blogs:

aspecpplarebeautiful
cake-for-ace
aceofbays

(these are just a few I know of! There are many more out there)

Thank you, Ash, for participating in this interview and this project. It’s very much appreciated.
