From sketch to print

What a difference color makes! I recently took another page from my 2011 Sketchbook Project and digitally colored it in Photoshop to add it to the shop and Poppytalk Handmade. My 'I love tea' moleskine was so popular I thought this tea/coffee theme would suit a lot of people. After all, who DOESN'T love tea, coffee or both? 

Here is the final, digitally colored piece. I could probably do a million color versions of it since I love playing with color so much. It really does wonders to liven up a doodle and even change the 'feel' of it. The doodle features tea and coffee paraphernalia. My favorite being the espresso maker. Reminds me of my grandmother.

Did you know that I have been drinking Cafe con Leche (espresso with steamed milk) since before I was in Kindergarten? True story. Coffee and kids is a normality in the old school hispanic home. Used to have a cup every morning before being sent off to school!

This print can be seen and purchased through Poppytalk Handmade through October 7th. Or you can pick up a print at my Etsy shop here. Cheers!
