We have a super sweet Friday treat for you. As fans and loyal readers of Stylist Magazine we loved it when Jo Bird was commissioned for a second ‘foodie’ illustration. Last time we experienced her tantalizing gastro pulled pork burger, but this time we got a sweeter illustrative treat; flick to page 62 of issue 195 to find Stylist’s illustrated ‘Box Clever’ chocolate selection of dreams.
This was not exactly a tricky creative brief for illustrator Jo, a self-confessed chocolate connoisseur who likes the pace of Stylist's briefs, which are always a fast turnaround being a weekly publication and all. Jo drew the illustrations in her signature line style and colored each one for a watercolor effect in PhotoShop. We conducted our own chocolate taste test and learned that at jelly, the Celebrations Malteser is, indisputably favorite, the classic Ferrero Rocher comes in at second place which is followed closely by the luxurious Guylian Chocolate shells; which are Jo’s favorite incidentally.
