Here’s the design for the new Mezcal Cantina (Niche Hospitality Group, Worcester MA) tee shirts. Similarly themed from the past Mezcal post, this time I had some fun drawing a room full of calaveras rocking out, recently found out it will be used as the staff’s tee shirt design.
This was all created as vector art, which not only means that it was easier to add all of those rib cages and teeth, but it can also be enlarged for a wall decal, billboard, etc… without losing any clarity.
Was recently contacted by the Niche Group and asked about decorating the windows of their (expanded) Mezcal location in Leominster, MA. They were looking for something inspired by José Posada’s prints but with a modern touch, so I added a few hipster calaveras as well as some cellphone-selfie takers. We wanted it to look like a fun time for a bunch of skellingtons:
How’d we do??
If anyone’s curious – I sketched these out on good old fashioned pencil and paper and then took some time “inking” it as vector art (courtesy Adobe Illustrator) so it could be enlarged by about 1000% without losing image quality. Troy Pontbriand (their graphic designer) did a nice job handing these files and turning around the final product:
And I thought it was cool that one of those skulls worked out pretty well for use as part of the sign for the newly expanded bar area:
Will have to drive out and see it in person one of these days!
