I was given the opportunity to create an illustration for an article in Edible Cleveland, a complimentary food magazine that circulates the Cleveland, OH area. The article was about local food hubs and how an app can change the way the hubs communicate with each other to spread local food around to its communities in an inexpensive way. The article refers to Malaysians Red Ants as a technique to moving the food around, which gave me the inspiration to create red food trucks to carry the oversized produce to the hubs. The apple in the center of the illustration represents the core or center of the hubs. It's very forward and that's why I think it works. An apple core as the core. Duh.
