Illustrating Pint-Sized Stories

Joe Java-Stout

About the project

Joe Java-Stout is a blogger who focuses on craft beer and the connections people can make over a good brew. Joe tells stories of his favorite craft beers, places, and events in a local radius so that others can follow his stories and experience the wonders of beer with him.  

Joe’s Storyteller Stout is a collaboration beer between Joe Java-Stout and Pint Nine Brewing out of Omaha, Nebraska. Joe worked closely with the brewers to create the holy grail of coffee stouts, and I worked with him on developing a label that would tell a story, much like how Joe does with his blogs. The concept we landed on was a storyteller sharing tales with all of the forest creatures, a fun and kooky representation of Joe himself.
