Beer. Which I get to drink for the low low price of occasionally helping him put proto-beer in bottles.
I felt like I needed to even the scales a bit, and my recent illustrator kick gave me a lovely excuse to do so. I knew I'd need some sort of iconic figure to be the visual focus, so I borrowed the goat I'd made for him previously. Then I determined what words needed to be on the label, and built from there.
The label is perfectly passable as-is, but I am most pleased about how I made it: the right way. It will be very easy for me to go back and change the colors and the text in the banner to make new labels for each different kind of beer he makes, without having to re-invent anything.
Postscript: We are rapidly approaching my 200th post. I'd like to spend it answering questions about process, photoshoppery, chainmail, or anything else that's on your mind! Leave me a quick comment, and I'll respond in my anniversary post next week.
