People looking for the unique or the unusual in the domain of edible art
often find their way to Dominique Jarry Sugar Art Inc., simply by word of
mouth. A case in point is the experience of the creative director for
Adbusters, a magazine with a circulation of 85,000 in 60 countries. For the
2002 November/December issue, in keeping with the food theme of that
edition, he was looking for someone to transform his ideas into an edible
picture that could be used on the magazine's cover page.
A phone call or so later, he was directed to Dominique Jarry.
Using a combination of chocolate,chocolate paste, fondant, royal icing, and
food colouring, Mr. Jarry was able to realize the client's vision to such a
degree that the in-relief image, as well as the script font that he
developed for the project, were used, unaltered, on the front cover of the
magazine. The final effect proved to be so popular that a postcard with the
same image was also published by the company.
