Atlas Moth & King Cobra

These silkscreened prints are now available online at my shop here. Here are some process pics, from thumbnail sketch to final screenprinting.

I was partially inspired to make the print by one of my favorite films, the documentary Atlas Moth (the sequel to the equally great Driver 23).

Support Your Local Brewery

I've been drawing these maps of local breweries for The St. Louis Brewers Heritage Foundation for a while now. The most current -- updated toward the end of Summer 2020 -- is still available as an 24"x18" print through their shop here. Hopefully all of the breweries are still open and ready to sell you some suds.

I've generated a big pile of inked drawings over the years while working on these: brewery logos, tiny slices of STL architecture + scenery, and lots of hand-lettering:

Here's a glimpse into my sketchbook, "where ideas come from". You can see here for the 2020 update I was really trying to figure out how to do a a Beer Goggles / 2020 Vision thing:

Thankfully I went with the STL flag sorta theme/color scheme instead.
Here's what the previous version looked like, 2018-2019:

And here's an even earlier version, which I detailed years ago on this blog:

I've gone back to this book over and over for visual reference and inspiration, St. Louis Brews: The History of Brewing in the Gateway City

You can see here where I was trying to rip off the Carondelet Brewing Co. style lettering:

Anyway, I've drawn a lot of other beer stuff too, like this timeline of the history of Beer, this bottle design I did for a special-release Schlafly beer, and all these technical renderings for Draft beer installers. Drink responsibly!
