Description: The Tatuana Trading Company specializes in honoring tradition, culture, and nature of Guatemala by finding food treasures locally produced by small rural communities including chocolates, coffee alternatives, tea's, spices and other foods. The name comes from a famous legend in Guatemala: Tatuana was a beautiful woman that came to a small town and bewitched everyone. Spanish soldiers, declaring her a witch, put her in jail. When they were going to put her on trial, a soldier came to her jail cell and found it empty. She mysteriously disappeared, leaving behind only one thing: a drawing of a ship on the wall. It is said she climbed in the ship and sailed away. So lives on the legend of Tatuana...

This is beautiful sean. Straight to favourites

vergad said on Oct. 25 '11

i forgot to mention, i think it's very clever the way you brought together Tatuana and the boat - brilliantly executed. and those little leafs as separators, what a wonderful touch.

Sean Heisler said on Oct. 25 '11

Thanks, Matt! Appreciate the comment. Somehow this was one of those things that just seemed to work out and fall into place, like planets aligning. Seven letters in each of the three words, the leaf dividers just naturally fit. I started out with sketches of the boat and sails, and it occurred to me the sails were like hair, and then there she was. Really nice client too and she's thrilled. Thanks again, man!

You know how I feel about this already and I still see the hands bud ;)

I wish the planets would align for me once in a while :(

Sean Heisler said on Oct. 25 '11

Thanks, Norman. I have another project going on right now where not even two planets are in alignment. :) You know, I see the hands now too I think, at the port and bow of the boat, kind of palms up orientation.
