Here's a little spot illustration just published in the April issue of Cincinnati Magazine. I thought it would be quite appropriate for this week's topic, as it's about the journey from green coffee bean to cup!
I have a little obsession with drawing faces on mugs and cups, probably inspired by my love of the Bourn-vita advertising campaign from the 1950's. The bakelite sleepy faced mug was produced as a promotional item at the time and I had wanted one for ages, I finally found one without its hat and then a few years ago my brother in law bought me a complete one as a gift and I love it!

Funnily enough I bought the big one from a charity shop recently and then just the other day in a different charity shop in another town I found the little one, seems like it was waiting to be reunited with its mum don't you think?
I really like this type of cute and kitschy vintage pottery and these are now happily at home on my studio shelf!
