About This Poster
While I haven't always lived in New England, my family always made a point to come back and visit our many friends and family members each summer growing up. When I think of New England, I think of summers spent in Rhode Island: Second Beach, clam chowder, Del's Lemonade without a straw, and all things nautical. I wanted to bring my Rhode Island summer memories to life through these illustrations, along with a few other New England inspired doodles floating in an open body of brew. Summer in New England feels like home – this poster represents just that.
This poster design is part of A New England Brew, a collaborative event hosted by BSDS in conjunction with Backlash Beer Co. in Boston, MA. Twenty eight contributing designers were asked to interpret the theme “A New England Brew” through the medium of an 18x24-inch poster. All profits will benefit Artists for Humanity, an organization which helps under-resourced youth into paid employment in the arts.
