A Flying Teapot

As a graphic design/ illustration/photography student, I sometimes get to work on bizarre assignments. This time, the goal of the project was to create some greeting cards. We had to pick either a tool, a box, a teapot or a glove and photography it in a funny/clever context. We could choose between making a huge setup in the studio or just photography the object and manipulate the photos. I was too lazy to rent the studio and too clumsy to create a miniature setting, so I photographed a thrifted teapot near a window and proceeded to (digitally) turn it into a hot air balloon. 


I'm not quite sure how I feel about it... It's kind of semi-cute and surrealistic, but also a bit cheesy/embarrassing. Clearly this is something my great-aunts would love to hang on their walls!


  1. Hahaha! This is fantastic, definitely great to brighten up people~ Great Job!

  2. Ha! I love the quirkiness of it and so you're so clever to use teabags as sand bags!
    I have missed your posts.
