Jazz Mutt 2018

This is the fourth label in the Jazz Mutt series of beers. These beers are made to share with friends at our yearly trip to the Saratoga Springs Jazz Festival.

You can still see the saxaphone mutt reused from the first label, but he has gotten his band back together! The rest of the musical mutts are combinations of simple shapes along with outlining actual dog heads to create the silhouette. The musical intruments also start with my outlining of actual photos of the intruments. The background was created one square and rectangle at a time and each one filled with a pattern and/or color to which an opacity setting was applied. Then they were overlapped, moved around, rotated, etc., and used to cover the label's background. A gray gradient was also applied to the top and bottom edge of the label.

The "K&D" logo appears on all our beer labels. I created it based on an old photograph of Daine and I in front of one of Diane's quilts.
