Tall Ales


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.

Each of the 5 beers were based on the character, Alf Aber. He is the sort you might find at the bar telling tales of derring do. And the more he drinks the taller they get. 

Each bottle has a tale
