Three focal point prints in Three weeks Oct 2016 - student project

Here are my mood boards for my two prints.  I had ideas for three prints but only got really excited about these two. Working on sketches this weekend! 

Caffe' Italiano: Inspired by my love of coffee!  Words are: Light, airy, rich, delicious, classic, espresso, tonal, enameled, milky, swirled

Here are my first illustrated motifs.  After working on these, I would like to take my focal print a little more abstract. I am going to work off the "cappuccino" milk pattern and keep building from there

Here is a print that will probably be a secondary supporting print in two colorways. I took pictures of my coffeepot and traced the lines to get the motifs.
