Starbucks Shade Grown Mexico

October 2, 2012

This is an illustration for the new Starbucks Shade Grown Mexico coffee bag. The illustration features a Chiapaneca woman with a traditional gala dress standing in one of the main plazas in Chiapas. I had a lot of fun with this one, the Chiapas dress is one of the most beautiful and colorful dresses in Mexican culture. Unfortunately this bag is only for sale in Mexico and not in the U.S.

Here’s a stamp I created for the new seasonal coffee being sold in Starbucks right now. This one went pretty smooth, the client was really happy with the result. When they mentioned the coffee was going to be from Chiapas I immediately thought of doing a jaguar. Jaguars are native to Chiapas. When I first started sketching, I went to a more realistic style, but after looking at some wood masks and fabrics,  I decided to go for a more handcrafted look. I like the way the illustration turned out.
