My little brother bought a house. It’s another one of those moments when you have to stop and ask yourself, “When did we grow up!?” Well, anyone that actually knows me would question if I am, in fact, a grown up but you get the picture. So, being the amazing big sister that I am (pause for Cody’s rebuttal…), I thought it would be fun to make my brother a fun piece of artwork for his new kitchen. He’s a 23-year-old boy so naturally he’s going with a beer theme. I expect nothing less from him.
I’ve been obsessed with subway art lately. There’s so many different ideas out there and people are using the idea for just about anything! I stumbled across a picture of beer-themed subway art and knew that I had to take a crack at my own masterpiece. Cody’s favorite beer is Budweiser (pause for a collective “ewwww”….I mean it’s Wisconsin. Where’s the Miller, dear brother?), so I incorporated that brand and some of its catchphrases into the art. I made the entire thing on Photoshop CS4. I just started learning Photoshop, so I thought this would be a nice little project to get my feet wet. It definitely took more time than I thought it would, but I wouldn’t say that it was hard.
I think it really turned out well! I made it as an 8×10 and we’re going to print, mat, and frame it. When all is said and done, my brother will have a piece of custom artwork for under $20! I think it’ll look cute! Cody hates the word “cute”…had to make sure to throw it in here somewhere. Looooooooove you! ;)
I’m excited to try this for all sorts of different themes. Maybe a Green Bay Packer one will be next. (Go Pack Go!!)
I linked up at It’s a Keeper, too!
