Storylab Interactive’s Immersive Dining events blend digital art, motion-tracking, and the culinary arts.
These illustrations were part of the Culinary Reconstructions event. Where we partnered with Albuquerque’s Savoy Bar & Grill and chef Frans Dinkelmann. The theme was exploring traditional dishes in a new light.
We worked on this project for about a month. I drew the illustrations for the animations that would be projected on the dining table, then made them into vectors in Adobe Illustrator. I worked alongside a contracted animator named Maddy to animate the illustrations.
The 1st course was the Shrimp Cocktail, which originated in the 1920s. I decided to make illustrations with an Art Nouveau feel. I used artist Alfons Mucha’s work as inspiration.
