Topic: Coffee Maker
Background: The saviour of many an artist during all-nighters and long days, coffee is the oil that keeps the engine running. This traditional drink first appeared in the 9th in the highlands of Ethiopia where, allegedly, shepperds noticed that their goats got more active after eating wild coffee berries. From Ethiopia it spread to Egypt and Yemen, and in the 15th century it appeared in the rest of the Middle East as well.
In the 16th century it first found its way into Europe via Venice. After the Dutch started to import it in large quantities it became even more popular. In North America the drink at first wasn't as succesfull, but after the British merchants came short on tea the drank raised in popularity (Wikipedia is, as ever, a great source of information )
Ever since it was first made, many different ways of making the beverage have been invented. The last decades the making of coffee has changed somewhat for the customer. Not only can you buy the beans and grind them yourselves and make coffee out of it, now you can also buy coffee in powder form and with the coming of the Senseo (I'm not sure how widely known this machine is though..) you don't even have to find out how much coffeepowder you have to use for a cup of coffee.
For this round of IDW, design your own coffee machine. How it works is completely up to you, I suppose everyone knows how to make coffee so the process itself is pretty standard.
One catch, try to design it in a specific style: Streamline Design, Kubism, De Stijl (a Dutch design style, I think it is even called this way in Englis), or Jugendstil -you can even come up with any other existing traditional or modern style in art. It'll require some research probably.

1. Design and draw a Coffee Maker!
2. Try to stick to an existing traditional or modern art style like Streamline, Kubism or Jugendstil -or any other style you know of.
3. That's it... now draw!
