A number of years ago, I was going through an extensive Art Nouveau kick and came up with a number of designs inspired by the poster work of Alphonse Mucha. About a week ago, I was digging through some old sketchbooks to scan some of the drawings into my computer and found about 20 designs I had done. Since I was happy with how the Four Seasons (Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn) had come out, I decided to go ahead and digitally illustrate a few more.
When I was originally drawing up most of these designs, I spent a great deal of time at a local coffee shop. Because of this, I was inspired to create the “Nouveau Barista” using one of the girls that worked there as the model for the image.
