Illustration Friday - Tea


Here's this week's Illustration Friday - TEA.
My wife drinks a lot of tea because she's pregnant now, and coffee tastes yucky to her now (!!!) Goofy hormones. The thought of losing my taste for coffee is unimaginable to me. In fact, I needs me some coffee right now. mmmmm... coffee.
anyway,
I went to a Tea cafe in Pittsburgh a week or two ago, and got some funky herbal tea for her. That's what inspired this illo. It just had this kind of vibe to it. (and my wife is not asian)

oh and if you want to pass the potato, click here...

Hey James

Beat you by ONE!

Great illo.
I like how she looks all comfy in her sweater and socks.

I dont know about you, but when I was thinking of what to illustrate for "tea" it made more sense for the person in the piece to be female. I just cant imagine drawing a guy drinking tea.

How weird.
