Drink Product Adds

Obviously this is a personal project... I did as a christmas present to myself. These are all 11x14 hand painted on canvases. You can see larger postings in my Behance file. A link is on my left side bar. I came up with this idea because I just thought it wold be interesting. I did the sketches last spring and decided to use time and money to do the paintings as a christmas present for myself. I believe these really don't fit in my portfolio. They are not real products and they are painted very loosely compared to my usual pieces. I just did them quick for fun. There is more in the series that I just didn't really have time for, an Emerald deer for German beer oh and maybe a tea add as well. When I told people about this project everyone had a suggestion to add. My friend Fii wants me to do an add for Bogie (british slang for cigarettes) with a raccoon. And I remember my friend megan asking me to do a zebra with boxed wine. Bogie is british and boxed wine is well, boxed wine. Im sure you can find it anywhere. So those two might become little paintings for friends. Anyway in the paintings the bear is bringing potatoes for the vodka. The horse grapes for the wine. The crane rice for the sake and the llama beans for the coffee. Oh, this is my 100th blog post. Cool, yay.

  2. This is such a fun series! Too bad they don't fit into your portfolio. It's always the fun personal projects that never seem to make it, isn't it?
