This illustration started its journey as a cheerful one. Two minimal cacti sitting together: that was my sketch on a small notepad. What could go wrong with a simple drawing like that?

After I vectorized the cacti sketch, the next step was choosing a color palette. So, I decided to use “cayenne” as part of the palette. Then came green for the bodies of cacti. But at some point, while I was experimenting with colors at Adobe Color, I decided to turn the greens to a more blueish tone. That was the move changed the destiny of this illustration.

Using blueish tones turned illustration’s atmosphere to a more depressed one and made two cheerful cacti look lonely somehow. This is where the absurd name of the illustration comes and this is the power of color usage.
