Presidential Illustrations

Nine Dot Arts hired me to create two illustrations for a Chicago Boutique hotel. The theme was 'presidential'. They approached me to do two illustrations - One of the cocktail the bermuda swizzle which was supposedly Franklin D. Roosevelt's favorite drink, and the other - an illustrated quote by Gerald Ford. 


For the Bermuda Swizzle poster, I wanted to create something classic and art deco that spoke to Roosevelt's era. This poster was letterpressed at Evanston Print and Paper in Chicago.



The Ford poster is stylized after 60s advertisements and 'american dream' illustrations. It is a three color silkscreen done by Sound and Fury.
