Asheville illustrator Tyler Capps in American Express ad


UPDATED Tyler Capps will be talking about his book, and signing copies, beginning at 7 p.m. on Wednesday at Malaprop’s in downtown Asheville. More:

On his food blog, Cooking Comically, Ashevillian Tyler Caps states: “I have no formal training
in the culinary arts. I’m just a guy who likes to cook and eat and also just happens to draw comics, take pictures and believe that if you aren’t having fun when you cook, you’re doing it wrong.” By combining his love of comics and food, Capps hit a sweet spot and now his delightful blend of stick figures, witty banter, and low-brow culinary art is available in a book, also called Cooking Comically. Join us for a booksigning and sample some of his easy masterpieces yourself!

Original post: Two years ago, Asheville’s Tyler Capps became a Reddit sensation when his illustrated recipe for “2AM Chili” skyrocketed to the top of the site’s front page.  From there, he added more comic-aided recipes on his website, enough to turn into a book, Cooking Comically, set for publication on October 1 through Penguin imprint Perigree Books.  (Preorder here.)

Capps recently starred in an American Express ad, part of their #PassionProject series.  Check it out below:

AmEx also cut a second video, in which Capps shows viewers how to doodle.
