Starbucks commissioned me to paint 3 large scale maps of coffee growing regions: Asia/Pacific, Africa and Indonesia. These large scale watercolor maps are 3 x 3 feet big. They are executed on Fabriano Italian Watercolor paper, with India Ink, English Breakfast tea, walnut ink and pencil.
Each letter, and all the writing on these map was hand drawn. Handwriting is unique to each person, much like line in drawing. Each stroke of the pen reflects who I am as an artist, as an individual. As a result, the lettering is highly expressive with a distinctly unique style.
The maps will be installed in Starbucks across the country.
