Client Work: Arts and Ideas X Black Hog Beer

Hi, everyone! I haven’t blogged in a very long time. I wanted to put together this post to talk about my commission from The International Festival of Arts and Ideas X Black Hog Beer. The theme was CONNECT and i was one of three artists that were hired to create artwork for this Pilsner Lemon beer that was released recently as a part of the festival. When I was creating the illustration I started with my upbringing in the arts all the way up to what I’m currently doing. The illustration features ACES Educational Center for The Arts, The New Haven Green, East/West Rock, The Palladium Building (KNOWN), Downtown New Haven and 195 Church St (The offices for Arts and Ideas)  See below for the illustration and photos from the Beer Launch event.
