this post is inspired by my current project in package design class. in a previous post i showed the beautiful koi fish i saw at the shofuso tea house in fairmount park. i am currently branding a tea company, sabi, and creating packaging for different types of japanese tea. i wanted to get my hands dirty with watercolor and ink to recreate the fish i observed and try to capture this aesthetic for an american audience. i’m really enjoying stepping off the computer and working with paint again!
