Illustrations for QUIN candy’s Candy Countdown Calendar, candy packaging and QUIN’s founder Jami Curl’s first book: Candy is Magic, forthcoming in 2017 by Ten Speed Press. I first met Jami in 2006 when I applied for a job at the counter of her then-bakery, Saint Cupcake in Portland, OR. Thankfully I got the job, and spent the summer scooping cupcakes and learning how to make delicious cake from Jami herself. Because of all this, I can bake a very, very good chocolate cake.
