AGI Teacup


Each year at the Congress of Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI), members are asked to make something for a special project. In 2013, the congress was in London, and the special project was to create graphics (in black) for a teacup and saucer.

I decided to make an incongruous cup. A senseless – yes, possibly even surreal – cup. First I drew a rim of stones for the sides of the cup.


And the, for the saucer, a rim of hair and, when the cup is lifted – a drain. Why? For no reason whatsoever.
