today

There was something called a Global Talent Search that issued the challenge of designing a cup, saucer, and napkin for a fictitious bakery/cafe.

This was my entry composition

TODAY is about being present, noticing the details and enjoying what is in front of me. It is about a fun place where the leaves are pink, the flowers blue, and the bees are green (and don’t sting).  A small reminder to slow down and savor what we have now.

 

Here is how it all started

I drew the pieces separately with pencil, picked a color palette, and painted them with gouache (opaque watercolor).  I wrote TODAY with a pointed pen in a modified-roman alphabet.  Then put the final composition together in Photoshop.
