another part of the cup series.
i really don't know what the hell i had against starbucks back last year when i got the idea for this... in fact, i don't think there were any bad feelings at all.
... i think it was all just an excuse to draw kelptomanic mermaids. in hind-sight, the flow of that tentecal sucks balls. needs to be waaaay more fluid.... although acctually i think it might work with the gaps between the line up of cups.
did you know that starbucks is named after the first mate in moby dick? initially, the company wanted to go with pequod, abham's doomed ship, but pr didn't warm to that idea.
also, may i recomend you all go out and watch simon schama's bbc series 'power of art'. i've pretty much blew through 5 out of 8 hours of it yesterday while i was working and it is GOOD stuff. ok, so the guy may be a little forthright with his intentions but it's a really interesting examination of the selected artists and the production on it is BEAUTIFUL.
