Apothecary Mead is a new company aimed at crafting traditional varieties of mead using time-honoured methods. They have just launched their first product, Olde Scratch, with Black Phillip, Summerisle and Nevermore varieties to follow. I am providing illustrations for all varieties.
This image is a good example of the way in which I blend digital methods with tradtional artwork – the goddess herself was painted entirely in Photoshop, while the crows were hand drawn with a brush pen to capture the evocative texture of their ragged feathers. The elements were then composited in Photoshop.
