So, as I often do, I get a bit distracted (in a good way) with ongoing projects, and neglect the website and blog a bit. As easy as it is now since switching to Weebly to manage everything, it's still tough to pull myself away from painting/drawing to update everyone outside of the quick and easy social media posts. With that in mind, just wanted to share some of what is going on of late.
I just finished a really fun project for the guys at Jobu's Rum...yes, if you're wondering, it IS, in fact, a real thing. If you haven't seen the movie "Major League", then you have no idea what I am talking about, and shame on you, because it's an amazing movie.
Above, you can see an image of the finished product. It was a really unique project to work on, and can't thank Jobu's Rum enough for the wonderful opportunity. The colored pencil drawing measures 12"H x 16"W and was done on a Bristol 400 series smooth paper. In case you are wondering what significance all the characters play in the drawing, the characters represent the competition in the rum market for Jobu's Rum...bat (Bacardi), octopus (Krakken), pirate (Captain Morgan), seaman (Sailor Jerry). Obviously I couldn't just replicate each brand's character, so I had to come up with some original characters that would represent each brand.
So, with that in mind, be sure to keep your eyes peeled at your local liquor store for bottles of Jobu's Rum! As I understand it, their main distributor is here in the Midwest, so a good deal of my followers/supporters may be able to get their hands on a bottle...unless your last name is Harris or Dorn, you might want to avoid it in that case.
Keep it saucy my friends.
Not rocket science, just a bit of an inside look at my artwork...with some photos and possibly some humor mixed in for your enjoyment.
