AEDM 2011 #2: Properly Caffeinated


Good baristas are vital to a healthy, caffeinated life. I wanted to leave my favorites here with a parting gift of my reverence for the many days they've kept me afloat over the past five years. This drawing is one that I've taken up again and again but never liked the words, so I kept scrapping it. Today I knew exactly what it needed to say. Time pressure has a funny way of forcing things like that. I finished the lettering and color just in time - movers should be here any minute and I'll be off to deliver these goods of my own.

Love this! I think I originally found you via Creative Every Day and now I find you here again in one of my "number" spots today! Can't visit all the links so I'm going to take a look at those just before me and after me and then number 43 (my age - YIKES!) and 7 (favorite number). Thanks for being #43 today and sharing your awesome, always-inspiring-to-me art!
