Art We Like: Tea Pirates
Tea Pirates! (For purchase on Etsy)
What I like about it: it's whimsical; it appears random at first, like an illustration from a children's book removed from its context. The pen and ink drawing suggests a narrative that's both strange and playful. And the thought of it in the context of a journal, hugging short meditative lyrics and snuggling next to long biographical monographs is full of delightful contrast and ironic potential.
