The texture-y areas of the tree and the ground chunks were created using a combination of gradation & various distort filters in Photoshop. Did this as a layer mask.
As a reminder, the food items you're looking for are: apple, chicken leg, cupcake, donut, egg, hamburger, ice cream cone, pizza, sandwich, waffle. If you find all 10, reach around & pat yourself on the back. Arms not long enough? Ask a friend or family member for help.
Here is the illustration from the last post, now inked.
The way I do any project is: do all sketches; send to editor/art director; await approval; ink all; scan all; line correct all; color all; burn a disk; Fedex cd along with invoice, signed purchase order, printed color samples, etc.
For this piece I will also have to provide an answer page, so I'll simply make a copy of this file with just the black lines, and plop in red into the hidden food items so they stand out like big sore thumbs.
Sometimes it's interesting to see a sketch for an illustration.
(Let's hope that's the case here.)

Hidden in this to-be autumnal scene are the following: chicken leg, hamburger, egg, pizza, ice cream cone, cupcake, donut, waffle, apple, sandwich.
In creating this, not only did I have to think about how to use shapes, I also had to consider the colors that these food items would need to be. For example: I can't change the chicken leg to RED to suit my purposes -- it needs to remain in the tan range.
The outlined boxy shapes are where the type will go.
The two outer boundary lines mean:
Inner line: cut line, meaning that's the actual size of the printed page -- keep all yer important stuff inside this line!
Outer line: bleed line, meaning that your art needs to extend to this line, to take into account any inconsistencies in cutting.
Will show this piece in its other stages: inking & color!
