Let Them Eat Hake
A commission to illustrate a series of both festival and special whisky labels. The brief consists of the main title plus a list of tasting notes, i.e. cherries, medicine, together with the obvious reference to Marie Antoinette in the title… information that I am asked to consider whilst developing the composition. These descriptions provide me with a wide field to exercise imagination and humour, resulting often in a surreal image. This also complies with the SMWS manifesto which states their desire “to do things differently as unconventional whisky experts”.
