Illustration Friday - TEA


I was happy to see "Tea" as the topic, and I had lots of ideas. However, I kept coming back to the same idea: my morning tea ritual with my cat, Maggie.

Oooh..I'm first:> This has a wonderful poster look with a touch of both art nouveau and 60's psychedelic all done up in serene colors. I love the steam from the tea that spells it out. And, I love how cozy Maggie looks. Your morning ritual looks blissful!

This is beautiful. It would make a great package for gormet tea, something really high class or, better yet,a beautiful tea tin! My grandmother is from Norway and they kept their tea in a tin that was very ornately decorated. She still has the tin that dates back to the 1880's.

Missed looking in on your 'tea' illustration last week. This is a very calming, relaxing and refreshing illustration... Just what tea's s'posed to do, right? I wouldn't know; I'm not the tea drinker in the house.

That cat looks a lot like my Tiger... would you like to take him, too? He makes a nice subject.
