A Tribute to Coffee
A couple of weeks ago I picked up a pack of “artist trading cards” – these packets of little 2.5 x 3.5 inch pieces of art paper put out by Strathmore. I’m enamoured of them. My first idea was to use them as a sort of “about me” series since I hate writing those little bios, but I’ve tabled that idea for the moment. (Something about that post was a spam magnet, too.)
I had another idea though. I’ve decided to create these things I’m calling word blooms – a central word (theme) and words (descriptors) surrounding it. I have lots of ideas to play with in this concept. This time it’s a tribute to coffee. I should redo it at some point to fit coconut milk in there; I tend to use it more than soy when I use milk at all (though in coffee almond milk is probably my favorite next to cow’s milk/creamer – and I do use almond milk a lot for coffee at home). It’s not critical, but still noteworthy.
It felt nostalgic to actually focus so much on the shapes of letters and words. I don’t actually write with a pen much anymore, it feels good to put letters on paper.
And I have to note again, if you like honey, and coffee, and you’ve never tried them together give it a go – I find it decadent.
