Dark Grey Spot Limited Prints

After publishing Dark Grey Spot online I decided to do a limited print run of 5 minicomics to give to family and friends. My next step was to create a card case that held the two minicomics. I wanted to make something that reflected the minicomics  and made people curious.


 

The TEA TRAY

I am a BIG fan of tea and I made this Tea Tray to celebrate just that.

I made this tray a few months ago when I started getting into Chinese green teas and I’ve used it nearly every day since! I was tired of having no ceremony or tradition to go with my teas and thought building a tea tray would make me spend some time learning how to brew teas traditionally…it worked! I wanted the tray to look ancient, but also contemporary, so I used the legs off an old chair for the handles and a bamboo sushi mat for the tray top. Turned out pretty good.

The INKWELL

I’ve recently started working with ink in my illustrations and realised just how messy it can get if you don’t have an organised work station and process. After playing around with a few ideas I came up with a steampunk inspired inkwell design that is way more basic than it looks. I salvaged some parts from an old computer and bent a spoon. After that I just attached it to a piece of wood. Simple but effective.
