Matt Prior’s Golden Bail


Another work update and the second beer label I’ve done for the Adur Brewery who like to match their bespoke ales with bespoke artwork. This one is cricket-themed, as you may have noticed, Matt Prior being a cricket player, apparently, and the Ashes tournament currently in progress. I know next to nothing about the sport (this is about as interesting as it usually gets for me) so I had to do some research beforehand. Those padded gloves cricketers wear are awkward things to draw in perspective.

As with the other label design I produced for Adur, this works better at a smaller size but I’ve added a larger version to the artwork pages. Those stumps look rather flat but I reduced the shadow so they could be read as stumps and bails from a distance. Once again, if anyone sees a bottle of this in the wild, take a photo and I’ll post it here.
