Coffee. I adore coffee. The caffeine is a nice pick-me-up, but it's more than that... there's something comforting and sophisticated in a good cup of coffee, and MAKING a good cup of coffee is a skill all of its own. Even if had some other thing to give me a bit of pep in the morning, I would still miss my morning cup of coffee.

The best part of this project was doing the research into all the different kinds. It was also a bit confusing... things like the latte and macchiato are made and served differently from place to place, do I did the best I could to represent a recognizable version. Some of the cups have little snacks to go with.. the vietnamese has a striped sweet called banh da lon, and the turkish coffee has baklava.

Vector pictures always look so simple in the end, but they end up taking a surprising amount of time. Well at least it takes ME a surprising amount of time. The vector work that I do is so different from the hand-drawn stuff. I know they always say that for an illustrator, it's important to have a distinctive style... maybe it's alright to have two distinctive styles? I enjoy doing the messy scratchy paint stuff and the clean geometric vector stuff both so much.

I really like the vector, stylised design of the different kinds of coffee. The way you did the coloured background shapes behind each coffec cup really adds energy to the whole picture.
