Description
In summer 2010, the Art Institute of Jacksonville announced an upcoming plate show that anyone could participate in. I went to the school and picked up a template for the plate as well as some crayola markers and went to town. What started as just a fun project quickly turned into an exercise in stream of consciousness drawing. I created a mug to go with it for my portfolio and created a simple packaging solution that wouldn't distract from the crazyness of the plate and mug.

I wanted to make this plate and cup an exercise in stream of consciousness illustration. I’ve always been a constant doodler and I came to the realization recently that doodles can become functioning illustrations. The plate started out simply saying “Eat Me” and went on from there expanding outwards from the center, adding an array of colors to the point that it looks like my makers had a crazy night and this is the result of their party and the subsequent hangover. The cup is a play off of the plate, reading “Drink Me” and using the same idea as the illustrations. The packaging in order to not distract from the plate and stand out on its own was done as simply as possible keeping an organic feel. It barely covers the plate so the audience can see every detail on the plate and mug they are purchasing.
