Gianluca Biscalchin was not always Italy’s (or the world’s) favorite food illustrator. He began his career as a journalist and it wasn’t until mid-life did he feel the tingling in his right hand to start drawing.
Also, he thought of himself as a fine chef until be began dining as a customer in some of Europe’s top restaurant’s.
Now, Gianluca (aka Biscalchin) is flourishing as a food illustrator for the best publications and advertising agencies. He also does book illustrations and a growing series of contemporary chefs and noted writers of the past.
Speaking of authors, The Literary Coffee (posted here), is a tongue in cheek illustration showing iconic authors and the coffee or other libation they might have enjoyed.
