I’ve always hoped i’d get the chance to design some beer packaging but have never gotten the opportunity. A couple of months ago I finally just decided to make some for myself and started sketching, and many weeks later I finally had a free moment to put this all together.

The concept was inspired by a stressful period a couple of years ago where a bunch of neighborhood cats started turning up dead. It left a strong impression.

Anyway, If you are a beer-making sort of person and think you might like something like this get in touch and let’s work together!

CUP 360

A few months ago I got an exciting call to contribute to a new line of packaging for Chipotle. Jonathan Safran-Foer was curating a series of short stories and essays to be printed on cups and bags, and each piece would be illustrated. I was given a story by Malcolm Gladwell about an experience with Old Order Mennonites .

After a little bit of back and forth we settled on this sketch, focusing on the barn-raising. final art_NM
A full color version I worked up before the decision came out that the cups would be brown and white.
