An illustration I put together to mimic the Psychogaze design we put together a few months back. A collaboration with Terra Spice, and Solemn Oath Brewery. This beer in particular is a Luscious roasted, toffee, and caramel malt flavors with Chai spice blend: cardamom, vanilla bean, clove, ginger, cinnamon, tellicherry black peppercorn, and ceylon tea.
A Solemn Oath Brewery branding in collaboration with Publican that I put together. Beste, a crisp, clean, refreshing lager with a delicate bready malt sweetness and a floral hop balance.
Famine. An illustration I put together with Solemn Oath Brewery, in collaboration with Port Brewing and The Lost Abbey. This label was drawn up for Dark Lord Day, 2013. A balanced, crushable Belgian pale with a light caramel sweetness, floral hop balance, and fruity, spicy yeast notes. Brewed in collaboration with Tomme Arthur of Port/Lost Abbey.
The neighborhood project was something that was created with After School Matters and 30 plus Chicago High School Students. Working together to create and install a piece that these young adults felt reflected the type of Chicago they see everyday. This montage has been a year in the making, gathering photos from various neighborhoods, as well, of their friends. The students wanted to work with the idea of a working class city, focusing on downtowns backyard. The reds and blues are in reference to Chicago’s Iconic flag. The more neutral colors are in place to mimic the industrial side of the city.

An illustration I did for Solemn Oath Brewery.
Late next week we will debut an American Pale Ale in the taproom. We called this creation ‘Skinny Jeans are Ridiculous’ because skinny jeans are ridiculous.

redballoonart asked: My name is Kathleen, about 2 years ago you spoke at American Academy of Art in Misha Goro's class, and I just wanted to mention to you that I still think about the things you told us, and it really inspired me. We have different art styles, but you had an attitude that every artist needs. I still follow your blog and I love your work! My question for you, how was your transition to the "real world" after graduation?
Hey Kathleen, Thanks, MIsha is a good friend of mine, and I am glad that he was able to link that up. As for a transition… it wasn’t easy at first. I quit my job that I didn’t like, sold my car to pay rent, and worked construction with my Uncle. Although, to contrast all of that, I moved into an apartment with three other artist friends. That was probably the only thing that kept me sane. Now, looking back, those were some of the funnest times I had.
