BrewDog loves Art
The BrewDog boys have been busy again, this time making a super special limited edition beer with their American friends at Stone Brewing.
Read all about their brewing escapades here.
The label for the first batch was created across the Atlantic and features a rather mean looking Stone Demon scaling the iconic BrewDog shield. Scary huh?
James and Martin also created some very special limited editions of the beer aged in whisky casks along with blackberries, Tay berries and delicious black raspberries. Click here to see more.
This enchantingly dark and fruity beer now needed a label...
Sketching out positions of the main elements, the Stone gargoyle, the BrewDog shield and of course that delicate medley of berries.
The paper artwork begins to take shape; a moonlit demon prowls over a tomb-like mound of misshapen skulls, entwined by thorny branches of berries and blossoms. Obviously every discerning illustrator knows black nail polish enhances the macabre nature of any dark piece.
Gothic flourishes and curios such as candlelit lanterns, an owl and a distant city skyline create a narrative within the artwork, reflecting the many layers of story and detail which combine to create this dark tipple.
The result? An inky nocturnal delirium, as deliciously dark and intricate as the beer it will contain.
