1960's Style Female Graphic

I created this vector graphic as one out of two proposals for a cooking blog. The author chose the other one, so I thought I would share this one for now.  I will share her blog header in a future post.  I have always had some difficulty with creating graphics of people, but I think this one turned out decent.  It is inspired by an old cookbook from 1961.

One thing that I did differently from the 60's cookbook drawings that I used as inspiration, was that instead of straight black lines, I used variable width strokes.  I think it added some life to it and some visual interest.  I do think I should add some lines on the top of the meringue pie to show the lumpiness of the pie.
