Sour Sticks

Sour Sticks

Originating in Mako, Hungary, the Paskesz company, founded by Anshel Paskesz at the beginning of the 20th Century, has become one of the largest manufacturers of Kosher candies. For those who like the zing of a sour tasting candy, Paskesz chewy Sour Sticks, covered with minute dots of sugar, turns out to be the perfect hit! Creating a hyperrealistic version of the package and contents meant dealing with the inside and outside of the package very differently. To draw the sticks visible through the plastic cover, they need to have a very different hue than those that are sticking out of the pack. Utilizing a thin flare and slightly muted tints, the inside candies begin to look convincing. Again, correct lighting and the resulting shadows that emphasize depth and dimension, help create the hyperrealistic effect.


Printed from the highest resolution scans, all prints are museum quality, using the Giclee fine art process on Epson Legacy cold press (19ml), a bright white, lightly textured, acid-free, archival paper.

“Colored pencils have traditionally gotten a raw deal. Today, however, the vast range of available pencil colors, the vibrance of each pigment and ease of color blending has taken them out of the kindergarten and into the fine art world.”
