Today I started a Youtube channel for Drawthatout (click here)
Its early days and still learning how Youtube works. The sole idea is to show you how I usually draw cups, some of them will have coffee inside, some others not as I already had my coffee. Too much coffee gets me shaky and then I can't draw (been there.. many times).
There is an additional complication to it which is the filming of it and how to position the hands.... new challenges, but may all be for the sake of learning and sharing with you the journey of drawing some of the Cafés in Melbourne.
I believe Melbourne's idiosyncrasy lies in a takeaway coffee. It has history, culture, love for art and travel, good food... and especially great coffee. These cafes drawn on coffee cups are how I see Melbourne.
Stay tuned for more!
