The owner of Brewco commissioned me to do a piece that was inspired by the cover art, “Back Story” by the artist Lorenzo Mattotti on the Sept 2014 issue of The New Yorker magazine. He requested that the woman’s tattoos be of hops and wheat, with the title “The Art of Beer”. I really liked the concept, and as I was playing around with it, I thought it could be cool to give it an Art Nouveau feel.
Here is the latest Brewco poster, Serious About Beer. The owner commissioned me to create a Brewco Manhattan Beach version of the New Yorker cover featuring the illustration “Hip Hops” by Peter de Séve.
Here is the canvas print on display at Brewco Manhattan Beach, CA.
I just completed the latest piece for the vintage-inspired poster series for Brewco Manhattan Beach. The client came up with the concept and the taglines, and then asked me to reference Norman Rockwell’s Soda Jerk for the piece. He essentially requested a 1950’s theme with a Victorian poster layout featuring a couple of flirting hipsters…
I just finished the latest poster for Brewco Manhattan Beach. Owner, David Zislis requested Rick Rubin for his “Our Beers Will Rock You” art series. This 54″ x 64″ giclee printed canvas will be on display at Brewco Manhattan Beach in the next month.
It has been a while since I have been able to do another Brewco poster, but I finally had a window of time to do one. The client requested that Tame Impala be featured on this, so I suggested that we go a little retro. I referenced the some of the great psychedelic Fillmore posters to get some inspiration. I had fun with this one.
I recently designed this 7′ x 3′ wall mural that is going to be painted in the front entrance of Brewco Manhattan Beach. Brewco is commissioning Colossal Media out of Brooklyn to paint mural. I’m sure they will do a great job. I’ll post images when it is finished.
For this latest Brewco poster, I was asked to reference Sergei Vasiliev’s photo “Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedia Print No.15”. Currently on display at the Saatchi Gallery in London, Vasiliev’s exhibit is a collection of photos of Soviet prisoners covered with tattoos. These tattoos displayed the secret code language of criminals in the USSR. Although I did use some Soviet nuances, I opted to keep the tattoos a bit lighter and use Brewco reference instead.
