Gin & Tonic

I’ve been toying with the idea of illustrating some of my favorite drinks for some time now, & finally sat down to work some of them out. Starting with my go-to drink of choice: a gin & tonic. Gin & Tonics tend to remind me of warm days, pine forests, & the movie My Fair Lady. After spending time browsing a few books on Victorian posters, & drafting out a number of sketches, I finished my first illustration. Now I have to go make myself a real gin & tonic to enjoy.

My main goal with this project is improve my lettering & work in gouache. My second goal is to get better at documenting my work. Hopefully my next drink will have more process shots. Now on to the next drink!
