High Tea
I recently drew some coffee-related illustrations for an upcoming magazine spread, which I'll tell you more about in next week's newsletter issue. But after finding out that January is National Hot Tea Month, I felt compelled to even things out with this drawing of a delicious, piping hot cup of tea for you tea lovers out there.

My daughter, who lives in the U.K., once told me, "You know the old stereotype of British people loving their tea, Dad? It's true." In fact, Brits drink more than 60 billion cups a year. Via the BBC: Why do the British love the taste of tea so much?

1. If you're interested in paper marbling, (e.g.: Ebru, the Turkish art of marbling), here are a few good places to begin: Marbling Magic – An Introduction to the Art of Marbling, and this 1970's film about the fine art of paper marbling. Here's another good 'Turkish Marbling' link. Marbling reminds me of 'hydro-dipping': Water Transfer Printing Hydrographics Applying Printed Designs To Three-Dimensional Objects and cell phones.

4. I've always found hyper-realistic art interesting, if for no other reason than it's extraordinarily difficult to pull off and rarely done well. Here are a few examples: 40 Hyper Realistic Artworks That Are Hard to Believe Aren’t Photographs. | I Refuse to Believe these are Paintings. | This Artist is a Master of Deception | 34 Hyperrealistic Paintings You'll Swear Are Photographs.

About Me

Hi. I’m D.E.Uhlig. I’m an artist, author, husband and father.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to draw. Years ago I gave my wife a hand-drawn card for our anniversary, and she loved it so much she made me promise to ALWAYS hand-draw her cards. Then our three kids made me promise to do the same with their birthday cards. And when I posted some of my drawings online, people began asking how they could purchase my work—so I created this newsletter. I believe in something I like to call “The Happiness of Art” and I hope it makes you smile.
