Today Needs a Whole Latte Prayer – hand lettering

"Today needs more coffee and a whole latte prayer" hand lettered illustration

This piece has been grown and tweaked over the last few months.  Just when I thought I knew how I wanted it or what I was going to do, something wouldn’t fit and I’d have to rework it.

I originally planned to do it on watercolor paper and use a wash for a more colorful background, but as I worked with the piece and saw holes where I wanted to add more visual interest, I decided instead on the little icon drawings.  Those seemed to lend themselves more to colored pencils (another media I had on hand).

In the end, I am pleased with the simple look and clean lines of the black and white with just a couple pops of color.  The piece was hand lettered in artist marker on card stock.  The images were colored with colored pencil.
