Red Brick Beer Label Bonanza

Screen-Shot-2014-09-07-at-10.43.55-PM

I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Red Brick Brewing company and the Creative Mischief team from Atlanta GA The idea was to create a psychedelic and enticing label for the Belgium Witbier Hibiscuwit, which combines hibiscus flower, cinnamon, and orange peel in a silky, tart, mellow brew that is easy to drink with surprising complexity.

Available now in limited release at your local tap-houses that carry Red Brick Brewery with a seasonal bottle release coming this February 2015. If your in the mood for an end-of-summer beer, then give this a try and you’ll know you will find it.

Editorial Illustration for All You Magazine

All you Magazine asked me to create a series of illustrations for their September issue. It was an article about how to avoid the common traps that a supermarket has in it to get you to buy more. I created a full page illustration for the intro, a spread and several smaller icons of traps that the article was calling out. It was such a fun job drawing what I love most…food!

“All the same,” replied Syme patiently, “just at present you only see the tree by the light of the lamp. I wonder when you would ever see the lamp by the light of the tree.”

OneSunnyDayInMahe

Piece title: One Sunny Day in Mahe, Seychelles
Map illustrated by: Nip Rogers
Features on: They Draw And Travel

Mahe is the most developed and inhibited island in Seychelles’ archipelago of 155 islands. Since its a relatively tiny island, with Victoria Town’s famous Clock Tower as the starting point, everything can be reached within a 20 to 30 mins drive. The colorful market where fresh produce is sold (lots of young coconut water), the government buildings, culture centers, the docks, and the crystal beaches are all within reach which gives the very-windy-roads of Mahe an awesome view for a cruise under the sun. This map is hi-res photo of a small part of a 19″ x 39″ illustrative painting to remind me of my sunny days in Seychelles.
