Today marks THE FOOD SEEN's 100th episode! A big thanks to all the past guests, future interviewees, lovely listeners, and everyone at HeritageRadioNetwork.com for all of the support! Scottish-born, NYC-based illustrator, Peter Arkle, comes to the studio for a visit. Hear about Peter creative process, on how to roast (and draw) the perfect coffee bean, sketching potatoes on lazy Sundays, and what makes him say "slainte"! Recently returning from a trip to his native Scotland, Peter worked with Scotch whiskey makers, anCnoc, on designing their next bottle. They'll be launching their brand stateside at the Manhattan Cocktail Classic come mid May. In the meantime, check out this video of the distillery on the "behind the scenes" of their collaboration. This episode has been brought to you by Hearst Ranch.
"A lot of drawing food involves slightly sort of abstract things. It's like blobs of color, and you get away from line quite quickly."
"Whiskey is perfect for the Scottish climate, and part of the New York climate." -- Peter Arkle on THE FOOD SEEN
