Oaxacan Inspired

I was inspired by the colors in Oaxaca, Mexico to create this doodle:


And by the amazing hand-painted patterns on wood – such as these Mexican whisks called Molinillos which are used to add froth to hot chocolate or milky coffee:


I will show you more about this fantastic art in my next post!  🙂

Salute!  (Cheers in Spanish!)
