Projects | Forge Cocktails

As a little holiday giveaway/promo over at Forge, we put together a series of eight coaster-sized cocktail recipe cards and I wanted to share a few of the illustrations I whipped up to accompany the recipes.

These were a lot of fun. The style was loosely influenced by Charley Harper and Stig Lindberg. I thought about hand-painting each one, but time constraints kept me quick and all-digital on this one, and I just tried to take advantage of subtle gradients and transparency for a richer look.

If you want to see the rest of the images, as well as Sean's clever copy and kick-ass typography, you'll just have to get yourself on the Forge mailing list!
