British Drinks…

…These are the roughs for an editorial job just completed. The artwork is full page for an article on British Drinks, I’ll keep the details quiet for a day or two as it isn’t due on the shelves for another few weeks. Detail wasn’t a requirement and it wasn’t necessary to specify one particular drink over another as there are 4 mentioned in the text – Vodka, Gin, Beer and Cider. I was simply requested to include bottles, botanicals (raw ingredients) and British elements. I therefore wanted to keep the image as simple as was possible, so Britannia became the central part of the composition with the colours remaining similar and the Union Flag providing the colour and emphasising the British element…

…The bottle image was preferred, though in the artwork I did include the type as they are simple semi-transparent shapes…

…Here is the finished artwork – thank you for the commission Meg…
