My brief was to illustrate 5 German Gins (for an article in a magazine) and to find a way to include important facts about each gin in the illustrations (f.e. what part of Germany they are from or what ingredients they contain).
I had a lot of freedom creating the motives, but I was also given five finger food photos and I had to create illustrations in matching colours.
I read a lot about each Gin, I tasted each Gin...
and I created a fitting stage/scene for each bottle in my illustrations.
I work with a mixed media technique: Ink, Acrylic and Photoshop.
