Lettering Practice: Coffee Humor



I've noticed I have something in common with all of the hand lettering artists whose work I love. We share a love of coffee. 

My preferred drink is iced mochas. Doesn't matter what time of year it is, it's an iced mocha for me. 

So, I attempted to sketch one out ( can you tell my home away from home by the green straw? )  and then scanned in and added a marbled paper background. 



But then I couldn't decide if I wanted to leave it alone or add something more so I played around and added a watercolor "splat" .  Graphics are from The Hungry JPEG. 


Mocha time!

Maybe it's because if you spill coffee, it can become part of the picture. My daughters love using watercolors, and I'm envious of the talent! I wonder what we Coke Zero drinkers have in common ...

So pretty!! I think I prefer it without the watercolor personally (more focus on the iced coffee drink), but both are beautiful -- you are so very talented!

Great job on the lettering - and drawing the coffee! I like the background you chose for this.
