Violet Lemay – My Foodie ABC Placemats

Over the summer I made illustrations for a cool activity book, My Foodie ABC Placemats: A hearty serving of doodles, drawings, and other fun foodie activities. An advance copy of the book (written by Puck, published by DuoPress) arrived today, and I couldn’t be happier! Wow, the book looks amazing. It’s such a sweet and clever project, the brainchild of Mauricio Velázquez De León, owner of DuoPress. Each page, which tears off to become a placemat, contains a letter of the alphabet and the corresponding artwork from the original book, My Foodie ABC, as well as fun activities related to the food depicted. Coming soon to bookstores everywhere!
