Recipe Comix: Celebration Sandwich

"Draw us a recipe." That's the brief we sent to a slew of our favorite comic artists; each week, we're thrilled to present what they sent back. The resulting works of art are fantastic, beautiful, hilarious, thoughtful, informative, and often all of the above — and they prove that a recipe doesn't just have to be words on paper.

This week's recipe comic comes from the pen of Kevin Budnik, a Chicago-based cartoonist and illustrator who is in the midst of an ongoing project to visually chronicle every single item in his bedroom. He takes a break from the compilation of that catalog to share his recipe for a Celebration Sandwich, where everything from raisins to salt & vinegar potato chips meet on slices of marbled rye. (Plus: a bonus recipe for salami roll-ups!)

Kevin Budnik is a cartoonist and illustrator from Chicago. He is the author of the journal-comic Our Ever-Improving Living Room, which he updates weekly. He is currently the co-editor of Linework, an anthology of comics and graphics, which will be releasing it's third issue in the Spring. Kevin is several months into a year-long exercise to document every item in his bedroom, which he posts daily on his blog. In the past he has listed his favorite foods as spaghetti, tacos, and more recently, tuna sandwiches. Find more of his work on his website: kevinbudnik.com
