Oh and I used a combination of Photoshop CS2 and Illustrator CS2

Outstanding label. And I like the Brewery name too.



Reason: spelling.

Thanks! I wish the guy sleeping on the sidewalk had turned out better, but i wanted to go for a grocery bag sorta look. Really grainy and only a few colors.

What's next? Kitty litter stout? Liver spots porter?

So, the guy is a little blurry, it fits the concept.

Very cool. Dig the concept. I agree with david that the guy in the center could use just a tad more definition and / or contrast, but overall, I like it

I like it just the way it is. The picture makes you sorta concentrate on it like those 3-D pictures that were all the rage back in the mid-1990's. It gives you something to study while you're drinking your beer! Kind of like all the characters we tried to pick out on the Old Style cans back in college!
