It's one of the Pantone colors of the year.

It's also a warm and creamy comfort food.

So here's what I've been cooking up in my studio. 

Meet Tribal Custard:

I know, I know, tribal and custard don't really go together. I mean one is primitive and edgy and the other is a creamy warm comfort food. 

Until now. Tribal meets custard. 

I started with a thick variegated chunk of dried acrylic paint. I peeled it off the palette, and then it wanted to be embellished and adorned. So I cut it into slices and arranged them in a harmonious order. Then I added beads of copper, clay and wood.

"Just as the name implies, PANTONE 13-0720 Custard is a delicious and delectable yellow. Sweet and sunny, Custard is a cheering tone that brings thoughts of pleasant relaxation and comfort food. Engaging with its soft and mellow warmth and full of good feelings, subtle Custard has an affable and easy disposition."
