Illustrated recipe for apple porridge

I’d been thinking how it might be nice to try cooking porridge in the slow cooker overnight but I was worried that it might just weld itself to the pot so I haven’t been brave enough to try yet.

Usually I like to have plenty of protein at breakfast time to keep me full but I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather over the past week and fancied something a bit more like pudding for breakfast. Sort of comfort food.

So this was my solution. Roasted apple mixed with butter, sugar and cinnamon on top of a bowl of creamy porridge.

This is a double page spread in my Leuchtturm sketchbook. I think I need to start using it more for coloured pencil drawings (which would also mean that I can practice drawing with coloured pencils a bit more) because the paper in this book, although it’s thick, doesn’t seem to like watercolour all that much.

I used Copic multiliners 0.05, 0.3 and 0.8 and watercolour pencils for this drawing. You can click on the drawing to see a bigger, higher-res version on Flickr.
