While deployed to East Africa, Corban sought to create a unique illustration series inspired by his time in the region. Looking around the combat camera office he noticed an old box of Meal, Ready to Eat (military field meals). While digging through the box he found old instant coffee and mixed it up using the supplies in the pack.
Corban started experimenting with how the coffee took to paper and ink. After some time he came up with a series of MRE illustrations inspired by his time in uniform. He self-produced video documentation of the collection that can be viewed above.
