"I have measured out my life with coffee spoons"

For our final project for Make Art That Sells Bootcamp, we were given the assignment to make a piece of art featuring our favorite beverage. Drawing something coffee themed was a no brainer for me, but it took me awhile to figure out a plan of attack. At the end of the day, my love of coffee isn't rooted in taste per se, but rather emotion. For me, coffee is family get togethers, working in cafes and cups of Dunkin's before heading out on a road trip. Like T.S Eliot said, "I have measured out my life with coffee spoons." And this inspired me to draw the above, mindful of the way all those mugs of piping hot liquid have bound together so many disparate life events.

T.S. Elliot hit the nail on the head, as you have here. Love the tie blowing upward!
