Enter The Wonderfully Weird World Of Celeste Byers, Digital Food Artist

We are always on the lookout for quality food artwork here at Food Republic. Enter Celeste Byers, a self-described "avid ocean worshipper, dream recaller and nature enthusiast" whose works have been featured in various magazines and The New York Times. Celeste recently created a series of illustrations by hand – which are then digitized – for a book about Cook's Garden, which supplies Los Angeles restaurants with fresh herbs, fruit, vegetables and eggs. Here are some of our favorites below.
