PRAIRIE LILY Beer Logo by Huwman PRAIRIE LILY Beer Logo by Huwman
This is a label I drew for our wonderful new local craft beer maker, Prairie Sun Brewery. They wanted a tattoo-style, retro, distressed look so I drew this in vectors (Adobe Illustrator) over a hand-drawn pencil template, then added stains etc., in Photoshop.

The best compliment I've had in a while was when I heard that Heather (one of the people that runs Prairie Sun), had asked a local bar if they would put up posters for individual beer brands and the bartender said they had a rule of not doing that (too many request, I suspect) but, when he saw this poster he said, "Okay, I WILL put THAT one up!" Nice, eh?

The good folks at Prairie Sun are fun to work with and they make fantastic beer (and that's coming from me, a whisky drinker!) :) If you are in the Saskatoon area, don't hesitate - try their beer today.

The Prairie Sun Brewery website is here: www.prairiesun.ca/

Their Facebook page is here: www.facebook.com/PrairieSunBre…

Drawn in vectors using Adobe Illustrator, over top of a pencil sketch. Coloured and stained, etc., with Photoshop.

You mean the beat up, distressed look? That's fun to do. It's weird but I spend about half my time making crappy images look good again and the other half making perfectly fine images look distressed! ;)  Anyhow, thanks for the faves!

I meant the entire effect, but yes, that too :D
Hehe I've done some time distressing, partly in
Photoshop and partly traditionally. It can be a
lot of fun. :la: It's my pleasure, buddy!
