Geez, my attempts at making something in art nouveau style have really changed a lot between 2000 and now.
La Dame au Fromage
So, I live in Grand Rapids and I work for this shop called The Cheese Lady. We have all these Mucha illustrations hanging on the walls, but while he did drawings for wine, beer, chocolate, and other fancy things, there was nothing for cheese. So I made this. The text loosely translates to “The Cheese Lady of Grand Rapids.” I know “la grande vitesse” isn’t the most accurate translation, but we have a famous sculpture by Alexandre Calder here called La Grande Vitesse and it’s basically the symbol of our entire city, so I went with that.
This is basically my job. Wear long, flowing robes and slice cheese while staring dreamily into the distance.
