Graphic Arts

I’m not sure I have an identifiable design aesthetic. Some of what I do is inspired, some miscellaneous, some serve a client, a brand, or work as a user interface or user experience element. Most of my work is a playful combination of photography, graphic design and vector graphics. All of it is fun to create.

Beer Labels

My wife and I have been brewing beer since 1995. Our first labels were created with a now extinct application called SuperPaint before moving on to Photoshop. The question is always – which will turn out better the label or the actual beer!

Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout


For the winter season I wanted a beer for relaxing in front of the fire, or one that would relax me in front of the fire.

This should be a high ABV beer (~8%) and the fermentation included bourbon barrel oak chips.

The label was assembled in Photoshop with a photo of our fireplace and a wine barrel of ours. You’ll recognize the branded logo on the barrel from previous beer labels. I had to remove the brand (in Photoshop) that was on the barrel to add ours and give it a hot poker branding look.

Happy Holidays!
