The other day at work, I was working with an art director on a ad that was all about cookies. We started talking about the styling of everything and he was telling me all about the photoshoot and the food artist/stylist he worked with. He was explaining how the artist brought in a huge tool kit and sat and painted these cookies for about 4 hours. He said she had every kind of baking decoration you could ever imagine. I figured she went to school for cooking or baking but to my surprise she studied sculpture. It makes sense if you think about it.
It got me thinking that in my next life or if I could start all over again I would love to be a food stylist. I know it sounds like a super tedious job but at the same time it's sounds like so much fun. And how can you not like working with food?
