Breaking Bad – the story of the cupcakes

Breaking Bad. I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to these kind of TV programs, so when I got the request for this theme, at first I wondered where on earth I could go with it. I considered small models of chemistry kit, or other drug-related paraphernalia – but kept getting stuck.

And then took my car in for a service. I couldn’t get a courtesy car this time, so ended up drinking coffee and waiting around for about an hour. I make sure I always carry my design book and a set of coloured pencils in my handbag, so finally I had the ideal opportunity, and the head space, to think it through.

A leisurely wander around google and pinterest, produced some interesting results. I realised that the promotional material, posters and adverts, were amazing. A combination of colours and imagery that I just knew would look great on a set of cupcakes.

So I sketched some toppers, using black and white silhouettes on green, and the periodic elements for Adam’s name.

And despite still not knowing much about the TV series, they remain one of my favourites.
