Succulents are popping up everywhere. In funky containers, concrete planters, wreaths, even bridal bouquets. But as cool as they are — they often come with a hefty price tag — which is why Apartment Therapy decided to make a different form.
I recently finished reading Victoria Moore’s “How to Drink,” which was educational as well as being a terrific light summer read. The approachable informal style made the book feel like sitting down with a more knowledgeable friend to chat about drinks. Having only worked my way through part of the drinks, many of them classics, I got tired of searching through the book every time I wanted to reference a recipe. From that followed the idea of making visual guide to the beverages I liked/wanted to try, and from there I began sketching out graphic recipes.
These sort of diagrams have of course been done before, but these were mine, and I was determined to make them easy to read and visually appealing.
I redrew some drinks a couple of times searching for the best graphic system to codify the different ways of making a drink: which glass to choose, how to deal with ice, etc.
l kept everything hand drawn. They’re all fairly simple drawings, so doing them on a computer would probably make them appear sterile, and uninteresting. Also, I was trying to learn each drink.
I finally landed on a style (as can probably be seen in these last few pages,) and decided to try coloring them in. Unfortunately, so far there’s no way to see the steps involved in making the drink.
Doing a diagram with watercolor was always a next step for me anyway, but I like the idea of producing this as an adult, coloring/recipe book that can be colored in as you try the drinks. It’s a neat idea, which for now will remain an open project.
