Hot Rum Cow: A History of British Cider
Agency: White Light Media
Art Director: Eric Campbell
Awarded Runner up. Creative Quarterly CFE 30. Professional Illustration.
This is a series of illustrations commissioned by White Light Media, for the UK magazine Hot Rum Cow, Issue 2.
Hot Rum Cow is a quarterly magazine for people who are fascinated by great beers, wines & spirits - and the extraordinary stories behind them.
I was commissioned to illustrate the magazine cover and the feature article 'A History of British Cider'.
The art director gave me creative freedom to work in a style I felt suited the piece.
I enjoyed the medieval angle and wanted to reflect that in my illustrations by suggesting old tapestry design. I also developed an earthy palette which I took from the existing logo and worked that into my artwork.
