LADY OF THE LATTE
This was a certificate design option for the UK barista championships. I had a death in the family around the closing date for this project and so they may have had to go with another design. This piece is loosely based around the art work for the film 'Excalibur' and I've gone for that 80s airbrush effect. For those of you unfamiliar with the coffee industry, they run these competitions where baristas can attempt to out do each other in the noble art of coffee making. The device in the Lady of the milky Lake's hand is a portafilter which is used in making espresso. A well established industry professional pointed out that the lake of milk splashing about and dripping down the supernatural water dweller's wrist could be considered as looking 'spermy'. I choose to ignore his comments.
