D’ough! There is something in the road!
The wordplay nature of my paintings often means that one funny title or image can spawn a dozen more ideas. Coffee Brake was conceived when I was developing Coffee Monster but I wasn't quite sure how to combine vehicular activity with a cup of joe. When I found this lovely toy delivery van, I knew my donut-in-the-road idea was no longer “half-baked.”
- I wanted the subjects in Coffee Brake to be animated - as if you caught a glimpse, stop-motion style. I used string to suspend the objects and but left them out of the final image to heighten the topsy-turvy feel. Lighting is from the lower left, positioned to create dramatic, bouncy shadows.
