Studying Moroccan Cooking in Marrakech

Combining ingredients for a chicken tajine.

I wanted to share this feature article I wrote for CultureVixen.com, about my experience learning the art of Moroccan cooking abroad.

I love Moroccan cuisine. Pastilla, or meat pies encased in puff pastry and covered with powdered sugar and cinnamon, savory lamb tajines, and hot mint tea don’t even begin to scratch the surface of this complex culinary culture. My food obsession led me all the way to Morocco where I followed my taste buds right into the Moroccan kitchen.

A while back I attended my first roller derby match and loved it! The event flyer was super catchy and featured a colorful illustration of two skaters facing off. I tracked down the illustrator who turned out to be esteemed storyboard artist Sandra Fame, also known in the derby world as “Tara Armov”.

Well, I interviewed Tara about skating and art, and my full-length interview, “Skating and Drawing, Behind the Scenes with an L.A. Derby Doll,” made it into Blood and Thunder magazine as a featured cover story!!! Wow! The magazine is on newsstands now, and you can also check it out online at bloodandthundermag.com.

400TH POST: GayleWheatley.com Has a New Look! art

Not only is today’s post my 400th post, but it also marks the launch of my brand spanking new artist website and blog. Can you believe it?!? I’m so excited!

This is design version #7.0, and this launch means the long hours of coding and design into the middle of the night have come to an end. (whew!) That means I can get back in the studio and just paint again!

I started this blog in 2005 and 400 posts later, it’s still going strong. So have a look around and please feel free to get in touch with your feedback and thoughts, I’d love to hear from you!
