*GUEST* Visual Vocabulary: Gustatorial by Sarah Rado

The next guest illustration comes from my sister, Sarah Rado. I can always count on Sarah to keep things the best kind of weird and creative, and she didn’t disappoint. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the first ever vocab word to appear in the fine medium of...pancake batter! How very fitting.

Gustatorial: of or relating to gustation: the act of tasting; the sense of taste. As in, “As soon as the buttery pancake touched her lips, her tastebuds were overcome with heightened gustatorial pleasure.”

It seems we have an ongoing theme of om-nom-nom this week, am I right? I love that there were no re-dos to this word, because Sarah confessed to me that she ate her artwork right after she took the pictures. It’s making me hungry for buttery pancakes right now....But wait...how about some coffee with those pancakes?

Thank you so much for always being game for creative adventures, Sarah!


Visual Vocabulary is a project I created for myself in which I attempt to sear new words into my memory by illustrating them. I'm celebrating the one-year anniversary this week with some guest illustrations (hooray!) You can see all of them here, and read more about the process behind them here.
