Friday Sunshine ☀

I'm mixing it up a little bit this week with a bit of #fattybumbumdrawsvans AND a recent Sunshine commission... but please bear with me, I promise they're related...

You may remember a few weeks back when I first introduced you all to my new personal project - the one with the food vans and the stalking? Well since then my little #fattybumbumdrawsvans hashtag over on IG has been filling up nicely, (along with my tummy) as we've been sampling more of the mighty fine food trucks that Cambridge has to offer.

The very first van I doodled was beautiful Rudi who belongs to RöstiStrasse and serves up the most AMAZING rosti and slaws, which we first sampled at the Mill Road Food Feast back in March...



After admitting to the lovely RöstiStrasse folk that I had been stalking and doodling their wonderful van, the owner Ben got in touch with me about a rather interesting commission to help their customers understand exactly what a rösti is. I was delighted and of course jumped at the chance to help out with my doodling skills!

The brief was pretty straight forward, to show the delicious, quality ingredients that go into their rösti, how it looks, what the topping options are and finally how it is served. I'm sure you can imagine, being the foodie lover I am this was a dream project and I loved being set the challenge of doodling each element (in between popping to the kitchen for snacks obvs!)


So after playing with a few ideas and talking over a couple of versions, everyone was happy and Ben selected a final design...


This week I decided to take a day off after the Trade Fair and hopped on my bike to the FoodPark #GoWest site on the other side of Cambridge. It was somewhere completely new to me and I got a bit lost but the sun was out and it was a beautiful cycle ride nonetheless! 

It was so lovely to meet Ben properly and see the final printed sign in use! It still seems so surreal to see my doodles out and about in the real world and I get so excited about it all - I'm sure folk think I'm a little strange. I was even more excitable this time too as I got to sample another DELICIOUS rösti, I went for the HUHN topping and my goodness, it was incredible! 



Don't take my word for it though, if you're ever in Cambridge town make sure you look up @RostiStrasse on twitter and grab yourself a treat! You can also keep up to date with lots of other food vans through the @foodpark_Cam twitter feed. It's full of regular updates, seriously tempting food pictures and I'm sure it will be the death of me and my skinny jeans someday! Below is a little sunny snap of the tasty line up of vans at the #GoWest site on Wednesday...


I hope you've enjoyed the slightly different Friday Sunshine post this week and if like me you're feeling a tad peckish now... enjoy whatever snack you're off to grab from the kitchen...

HAPPY FRIDAY!
