Neil Watts from brand experts Stocks Taylor Benson contacted me to say they were developing an idea for a range of specialist beers and would I like to do some linocut images for the labels.
I began with drawings which I developed into digital images. This is an essential part of the process as the client can make changes before I commit to the linocutting process where things cannot be altered.
