New Absinthe Posters

I feel like I have been working on these things for ages, scribbling in little bits on each one between work on my usual projects. I am happy I finally got atleast two of them done. So I thought I would share them as I usually do. Hope everyone enjoys their weirdness.
I was looking at some old graphic design stuff, and I was inspired by some old Absinthe posters and the weird sort of mythology that had evolved around the drink as it has fallen in and out of banishment. And though it is now legal again in the US (a rather unpleasant drink if you ask me) it has very strict laws that govern how it is to be advertised and labelled. So I thought I would break those rules and make something a little more old school. An odd melding of the original Victorian era images, art nouveau design and the strangely surreal stuff of some of my older work. It was a lot of fun to revisit ideas and imagery I haven't really played with in a few years.
