Gin & Tonic

Gin & Tonic by Kate Brady

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!

Inktober: Poison 003

Day 3 of Inktober – loving today’s word! I know my concept is not original, but there is something about the word poison that always makes me think of apples. Probably because I watched so many disney movies growing up.

Poison Apple
Have a bite. It’s harmless.

Inktober: Divided 002

It’s only day 2 of Inktober & I’m having a blast. Nothing puts you in the mood to be creative like a daily challenge. It’s only the second day, so here’s to keeping up the momentum.

Inktober: Swift 001

Getting into the holiday spirit this year with Inktober! A drawing prompt created my Jake Parker where creatives (and anyone who likes to doodle) draw something new every day using inks. A list of words are provided as inspiration and the rest is up to you.

Kate Brady’s Work in Progress

Hello hello!

I’m always busy working on something. From lettering to design and illustration, I love to have a project or 7 on my desk. What can I say? Having something to be inspired by is fun!

This is where I will be posting what I am working on. I’ve got a number of strange ideas and interesting executions I’d be happy to share.
