Digital Illustration, 2016
In 2016, I took part in a series of creative challenges found in the book, The Creative Grab Bag by Ethan Bodnar. The challenge was to develop a poster, and I instantly envisioned an Art Deco themed piece. Taking design inspiration and ideas for textures from French artist, Adolphe Mouron Cassandre, and then cues from tea and coffee culture, I created the Tea Guru for my poster, MediTEAtion. I later translated the Tea Guru into other pieces.
UPDATE (11/4/17): Check out my blog post for Be Boun-TEA-ful, the latest painting in the MediTEAtion series, created for a fundraiser donation to PACE Center for Girls.
