I drink black tea by the gallon so I made that my subject. When I got out the pot, I noticed how much it looks like a ship. In my advertising days, I worked on both the Cunard Cruise Lines and Lipton businesses. It was all coming together.
One of the joys of working digitally is gimmicks like this – clouds made of tea cups and saucers. It also sidesteps the misery of rendering clouds. Clouds are hard. It’s like painting mashed potatoes. My nightmare assignment is a bowl of mashed potatoes under a cloud-filled sky. With the battle of Waterloo raging in the background.
