They Draw and Cook - Bilberry Pie

Here is my submission for the fantastic website they draw and cook! I had so much fun creating this recipe illustration. Bilberry Pie is one of my mum's specialities, wild bilberries grow on the moors where I grew up so me and my sister used to go out collecting them (coming home with purple stained hands and mouth where we'd eaten more than we'd collected) mum now buys them in a jar which means we can have bilberry pie all year round!

Thanks so much to the extremely talented Nate and Salli for letting me be part of this great project.

What's a bilberry?? N.B  "The fruit is smaller than that of the blueberry but with a fuller taste. Bilberries are darker in colour, and usually appear near black with a slight shade of purple. While the blueberry's fruit pulp is light green, the bilberry's is red or purple, heavily staining the fingers and lips of consumers eating the raw fruit".
