Brewco Hoppy Holidays poster

Here is latest Brewco poster just in time for the Holidays. The client requested that Santa have a pretty blonde sitting on his lap, and pouring him a beer. Naughty ole’ Santa….

For this poster I referenced a number of Haddon Sundblom’s Santa illustrations for the vintage Coca Cola Christmas ads. Sundblom actually studied under my great-grandfather, Antonin Sterba (1875-1963) who was a portrait painter, and who taught at the Art Institute of Chicago. Here is a link to the website I created for Antonin’s works of art.

Brewco Campaign for Real Ales Poster

This is the latest poster created for Manhattan Beach Brewco. With the tagline, “Campaign for Real Ales. God Save the Ales”, it’s a nod CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, an independent, voluntary organisation campaigning for real ale, community pubs and consumer rights. It is also, of course a play off of “God Save the Queen”. You can visit CAMRA’s website here:

The client requested that I closely match Shepard Fairey’s “God Save the Queen” poster; only I was to incorporate a more mature queen raising a pint. Here is a link to Fairey’s poster:

Here is the final poster:

Brewco Cheers Poster

I was asked to create this Brewco “Cheers” poster which was used as a template for the final glass piece. The printed canvas poster was displayed in the restaurant until the final piece was ready, months later.

Here is my final design:
