Japan series - Kewpie - original drawingBy Veronique Vanblaere
I always noticed the Kewpie mayo at my local Asian supermarket because the packaging was so retro and cute. But I never suspected that it was a product of Japan.
In the early 20th century, Kewpie founder Toichiro Nakashima traveled to the United States and discovered the flavor of mayonnaise used in potato salad. In 1925, based on his desire to “help improve the health of Japanese people, he launched KEWPIE Mayonnaise, a highly nutritious mayonnaise using double the egg yolks.
Drawing in ink and watercolor on watercolor paper. 5X7" matted to 8x10”.
I usually draw a few of each illustration instead of making prints, as it allows my customers to get an original drawing at an affordable price, which end up being less than what a print would cost. And each is still unique.
