Indonesia Starbucks

Batik designs from Indonesia adorn my latest coffee board for my local Starbucks. After all, Indonesia exports lots of coffee, right? There's a stylized peacock and a jungley plant, from the land of endangered tigers. Sumatra coffee is one of my favorites. I had conversations while I was drawing this and photographing it, with people from India, Mongolia, and Iran. I also consumed a chai latte, whose original inspiration is a mixture of Central Asian tea and European milk. I am so globalized that I am in danger of becoming spherical, especially if I eat too many Starbucks cookies.
