patience + fake coffee + real coffee

I’ve been doing many things to distract myself from Hearts & Holes lately. Garrr!!

This is why. I screen printed an accordion book of pixelated coffee cups in NYC!

I’ve been taking a silkscreen class in SVA thinking that I could do Hearts & Holes related work but this just popped out. I do love making pixel artwork.

A close-up of the cover. Registration is not perfect but good enough.

The inside covers are screenprints of old newspaper articles about none other than Mr. Coffee.

In total, it’s an 8 page fold out– the coffee ranges from chain brands to NY-high-snob-factor. I tried to present you the coffee in every way possible without actually telling you what they are. Where’s the fun in giving that away right?

In my preliminary designs, I actually had more than 20 coffee cups but they couldn’t all fit into the layout. I want to go back to it again though. There are so many great looking cups in New York.

I have another secret project that I’ll reveal soon too. And yes, it’s another distraction from my comic.
