Flowerful Mug available

2019-05-19 — Hans-Jörg

I needed a present — which is the usual motivator that lets me get something done — and I like the result quite well.

To have an image on both sides of the mug, but not just duplicating it, I thought it’s a good idea to write the scientific name of the flower next to it. But I have no clue how to figure out the scientific name of a cultivated rose, so I thought it’s a smart move to use the Vietnamese name instead.

But I learned soon after that most flowers that are not local to Vietnam have no Vietnamese names and I want to create more mugs in this style, so future mugs will be labeled with a generic Rosa spec.

The mugs are done by RedBubble and I am quite happy how the final product looks quite similar to the preview on their website.


Here I am presenting some mostly random stuff I do while being creative.

If you spot anything that arouses your interest, please send me an email in either English or German, by pushing on the envelope at the top of every page.
