just thought that I would throw up the most recent two labels I did, sticking with my theme of DIY beer having a label that represents it

nothing more "bro-zen" that the ole fist bump

and yea, kind of like Frankenstein but with a hoof

hope you like 'em

You accomplished this spectacularly.. and with style.

I effing love them, dude.

:mug:



EDIT:
How are you planning on turning these into labels? I was thinking - have your artwork printed in white on clear adhesive sheets to make it easy cutting wise and looking pro.

Nice! Tell me how I can mimic that white-on-transparent label thing. How do you get them off? Or do you just repeat the brew whenever you run out?

to keep things simple I have just been sticking them on with milk
they are just so easy to clean that way
Here is a brozen-weizen, the hoofenstein is about 5 days in primary

As someone that took his share of art classes in Jr. College, I respect that drawing of the hands. What a PITA those are to draw!

Nice looking logos - very different from the standard photoshop / Illustrator stuff

nope, just straight out of ye ole cheap printer I have had for about 5 years and a little bit of 2% ( I dab if off with a towel to avoid the milk drip marks).

Sweet Labels, What is a good program to use to create good labels?
I like to use illustrator, once you learn the ropes it is a great program, but sometimes not so intuitive

I think the three best ones out there (IMO of course) are; Corel draw, Illustrator, and Canvas

I know illustrator so I stick with it.
