Metal Travel Mug
Cold Forest Playgroundby Jeffrey J. Irwin
Talk about steely good looks. In addition to a 360-degree wraparound design, our metal travel mugs are crafted with lightweight stainless steel - so they're pretty much indestructible. Plus, they're double-walled to keep drinks hot (or cold), fit in almost any size cup holder and are easy to clean.
ABOUT THE ART
This is a combination of a lot of different images. Some I found, and some I took myself. The base image is of the coldest city on earth. Some of the buildings are from Wyoming, one is from Utah. The lamp posts are from Portland Oregon. The snow is from a capture within a video game. The bike is a vintage bicycle that I made into a paintbrush, then skewed and transformed the image to paint it onto an entirely new picture, remove the white around it, darken it via layer blending properties. Added in dots to the lamp posts to make them look like functional yet frozen over lamp post lamps. The ice near some of the buildings was created by content aware cutting, darkening, and wind effects. Pointilism/pallette knife effects were created through four different filters. The t-shirt design I made of a wold with a forest around it and a butte. The coloring I made to make it look colder and slightly more menacing. Shadows added in for effect.
