Alright, fine.

Yes, I know. It's been almost a year and a half since my last post. why?

I'm lazy.
REAL lazy.
If I were as good at art as I am at avoiding work, I wouldn't have time for a blog.

As it is, I have plenty of time. Just all in the wrong parts of the day.
See, I work most nights at Bethlehem Brewworks, a local brewpub here in town. They are actually growing into quite a company and from time to time, have some pretty good beers on tap.
In fact, Recently, I have been comissioned to do a few labels for them.

So, to get out of this funk, I thought I would start posting by putting up my latest labels, and Holy Crap, it's PUBLISHED work! Well, when I say published, I mean it's available for purchase and people can get drunk holding MY PICTURES! So cool!

Anyways, the Incidious label was one I did first back in February, and then the monkey ones came about a month ago and the new sketch is an idea for the latest beer.

I hope you enjoy them, and I hope this isn't my last post for another year.

I'd like to finish by saying thank you to so many of my friends and fans for constantly reminding me that maybe I have something worth showing to people. This post is for you.

The Star and gear logo is theirs, I just have to incorporate it into each label.

The Monkey beers came out as a pair, sort of. Both being saisons it made sense I guess. Actually, the monkey wrench is one of my recent brewworks favorites. I haven't gotten to try the space monkey yet, the government gets all bent out of shape over the dumbest things and takes longer to approve a label. In the space monkey case, it wasn't the image, but the way we had to describe how the raspberries are infused with the beer. (not pictured here)

Different, more classical approach with this one, I'm excited to paint it.

Well now, that wasn't so bad. Thanks those of you still interested.
