This is one of the pages from JJ's Graphic Recipes, which I drew last year. To my great surprise, it turned out to be one of the most popular choices to go on a tea towel when I conducted a survey this summer.
Of course, I'm delighted that people liked it, just mystified as to why!
I didn't ask voters to differentiate between what they liked looking at, and what they liked making and eating. It didn't really matter; it was simply a question of which to print.
-- So maybe it's just that the graphics filled the space well and would be visually appealing?
-- Or could it be that not everyone makes this sort of soup already? Is it a case of "obvious to you, amazing to others" as explained so well in this fab short vid by Derek Sivers?
-- Or perhaps the fresh ginger isn't so common an ingredient and makes the soup a bit unusual?
-- Or, as one friend suggested, maybe it's the title, with the word "random" which she thought amusing and not how most people would name a recipe?
Anyway, I made some yesterday, and it was very random and different from every other time I've done it. (But everyone liked it!)
Have a look at the tea towels here. And if you voted, I'd love it if you would tell me why!
