Drake’s Brewing 28th Anniversary Party!!
I recently teamed up w/ the folks at Drake’s Brewing to help promote their upcoming 28th Anniversary this weekend. The event is at their main brewery in San Leandro and will feature some music, rare beers and I will be set up selling prints. Along with this there will be an in-person “Coloring Nook” booth for kiddies and drunk adults to color some of my BW’s for a prize.
The idea for the concept stemmed from the Drake’s logo featuring the 2-headed duck silhouette. A lot of the early sketches actually featured a 2-headed duck, necks intertwined but the owners preferred treating the silhouette as 2 separate ducks with separate personalities and the concept was adapted as such. Additionally I worked in some more characters that represent some of Drake’s beers, Foraging Raccoon & Electric Owl, and designed the border based off the interior of the actual brewery with its brewing kettles and barrel walls.
The final print is a 7-color screenprint (18′ x 24′) printed by the folks at Monolith Press with a print run of 150. The brewery will be giving these out to VIP-ticket holders and will have some for sale at the event. I will be releasing my Artist run of 50, on Monday August 28th…. including a small run of about 10 foils.
I love doing beer work, especially for local folks and hope to work with the folks at Drake’s again in the future on some rad projects. To find out more about the actual event go to Drake’s Even’ts Page…. Cheers!!!!!!!
