When I turned twenty-one, I realized that there was a new world of art for me to explore, and it was on the craft beer labels that lined the shelves of liquor stores. This caused me to think about creating my own line of cans for my senior thesis, as I had been looking for a way to tie my design work together with my illustrative styles. While developing my ideas, it became clear that the focus of this thesis was to create a brewery where beer cans could be a showcase for illustrations. I named it Apricity Brewing Co., and created eight original can designs for it, along with merchandise.
The illustrations were done digitally on my iPad Pro, and the full can designs were created using InDesign and Photoshop.
