We have created a new beer that we need a design for. It is an IPA (India Pale Ale) with Rosemary and Vanilla and it is called 'Babble to the Nag'. The name is a reference to a Phish song called Reba which tells the story a girl who is mixing up a 'concoction' of random things in her bathtub and in the end it is a wonderful creation. That is sort of how we feel about this beer, that has ingredients that we wouldn't have thought when mixed together would transform into a delicious drink. When thinking of this beer we also were thinking of woods and druids and earthy ingredients.
We're looking for a illustration that is reminiscent of Phish concert posters. I've attached a few of the Phish posters and also some pictures of other beer bottle labels that have a similar style.
We'd like the illustration to have a background of woods/forest with a girl mixing up a 'concoction' in a bathtub, with the feel of a witch and a cauldron.
We would like our logo to be incorporated in some way into the illustration but it should not be a central point at all, could just be somewhere in the trees or an item in the tub...
Please feel free to submit work in progress so we can see if you are on the right path.
We will likely contract artist at an hourly rate to complete final details should we decide to use the illustration for packaging of bottles, etc.
