I’m taking a night class in graphic design and for our next class, our assignment is to create four images that reflect the four seasons based on color scheme and/or subject matter. I decided to do coffee and tea for my series. We have to use color packets of coated paper for the project, so I’m in my comfort zone since the project involves collaging, however, I’m not accustomed to using plain paper. This piece is the first one I completed in the series–the cool colors and the steam represent the coldness of winter.

Here’s a quick collage I did today. I’m going to get started on something else as well, and hopefully I’ll be able to post more this week. Things have been extremely busy for me, so I’ll try my best to work on more artwork.
