Cuban Peach Mojito Design Illustrations. Recently I decided to start working on some more personal projects with a more editorial style of illustration. This ‘Cuban Peach Mojito” illustration collection is the first project that’s in this more editorial style. This month in my “Pink Punch” art collective, our assignment is “pattern collection” so I combined these two purposes to create this collection. I also used the same illustration and re-designed them into a Cuban peach mojito recipe illustration which I’ll upload to “They Draw and Cook” website.

Here are some of the patterns I created for this collection. I wanted to capture people playing music, dancing and being happy. I want to bring in this kind of “party vibe and energy” into this series of illustrations, so when viewers see my illustrations, recipe or patterns they can feel happy, joyous and want to grab a glass of peach mojito and dance. That’s the feeling I had when I created this collection.

This year (2017) I’ve started focusing more on “art licensing” and “surface design”, so you can see how my portfolio is changing at the moment. It will be a dream come true if I’m able to license my art in the future.

If you follow my work, you know I always love illustrating happy things in my illustrations. Life is too short to be sad all the time so why not just enjoy it while you can? I have to admit I’ve never tried a peach mojito in my life. I’ve tried normal mojito’s before and I love them but after seeing recipes online for peach moijto’s I just had to illustrate something. It sounds like an awesome combination and especially because I love peaches.

The best peach I ever had in my life was in Xi’an, China. I’ve travelled to Xi’an a couple times and every summer they have a peach season and so peaches are very very cheap and incredibly delicious. Everytime I go there I always buy a big basket of peaches and I can eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, they’re that good. Just thinking about them now is making my mouth water!

Cuba is famous for it’s rum and rum is one of the key ingredients in making mojitos. They’s why I chose cuban culture, traditional clothing and musicians as my inspiration. When I created this collection I was thinking about creating a collection of illustrations in the future that’s based on cocktails and countries, for example Cuban Peach Mojito, Russian Berries Mule, Mexico Michelada etc. and incorporate these with that county’s culture. I think it could be a fun collection. What do you think?

I also uploaded my patterns to my Redbubble account so you can see some different product mockups with my design patterns on them. If you fancy some plates or other different products with my patterns you can have a look at my Artrookie page which has various products available to purchase.

      I love mojitos. They are so refreshing on a summer day. I love the way that time is taken into making them. It makes it worth while sitting on a nice terrace somewhere and enjoying one
