[one_fourth][/one_fourth][three_fourth_last]A really unique and super fun opportunity popped up the other day which, despite a few other looming deadlines and general shortage on time, I had to jump on. The artist slated to do the poster art for an upcoming beer fest apparently broke his hand and was thus unable to fulfill his artistic duties. A kinda chance encounter led to an email, a meeting for coffee, and my work on the poster.
The process of coming up with a piece of art to fit a loosely described idea is one that I always relish. I especially like the evolution from cocktail napkin sketch, to premliminary sketches, to final product. I was given pretty much free reign and this is what I came up with. I almost bailed on it mid way because it just wasn’t coming together the way I wanted. But things finally coalesced and the finished product looks pretty badass I must say.
The best part: not only do I get paid for this, but I also get two tickets to the brewers’ dinner on friday night, as well as the beer fest itself on Saturday. Starving artist indeed. 😉 Check out the Siptember Fest website for more info on what looks to be a super fun event taking place next month.[/three_fourth_last]
