Tea


This girl does not look pleased that she has a mug of tea, but it reminds me that there is a shiny electric kettle in my kitchen I should go make use of.

She looks tired/concerned about the rough day ahead.

thats some really cool steam coming off the tea, makes me want something toasty to drink.

Tea is the best...why is she not happy? :) I really like the flow of everything in this sketch, it's got some nice circular motion going on. Sweet!

Maybe she's concerned about something else, and the tea is for comfort?

Breadwig said...

She needs some liquorice-mint tea, I bet she'd be excited about that. Well, I am anyway.

sarah said...

Mmm... licorice mint tea sounds delicious.

And ha ha, Mike, you are right. All that steam should mean some safer mug holding. Guess that just tells me how often I end up leaving tea around until it's cold. :)

Hi Sarah! I was one of the students from Bryan Ballinger's illustration class (I asked about the board book you made ^_^). I wanted to thank you for sharing with our class! I was so excited to find out you were able to speak to us. Your art has really inspired me, and has been a huge influence in my own stylistic exploration.

Thanks again!

Hi Sarah!...I was in Ballinger's class and saw your talk today. Thank you so much for taking some time to talk with us :)... Very inspiring illustrative style you have. I was looking through your images and I love the swirling hair that you do, I actually have used that as long as I can remember.

Also you mentioned a "just add water" brush in painter. Any Idea where one might find such a tool? I've looked and couldn't locate it.

She cant be upset with a cup of hot coffee at her hand!!! Maybe she is really tired and hasnt even tasted the coffee, but when she makes that first sip she will change to a warm happy girl!!

Rowan Hood said...

I don't think it looks like that at all; but she does look tired.

What could she be thinking about? Her setting looks ideal and that cup of tea looks inviting. A beautiful sketch, btw!
