This week’s featured artist is David McKie, who has been a long time supporter of the project and we have been a fan of his work for some time. His detailed and intricate work has been used to help build and grow the brand of Speciation Artisan Ales. A perfect blend of sorts. Learn about his story, his process and how he finds his subject matter as well as his process when working with the brewery to create his art. Black and white is a powerful medium and it is his ability to make such a simple palette seem so rich and textured. And on top of it all we can’t let it pass without noting that all of these drawings, designs and creatives are created by hand without the use of computers or design programs. It’s amazing and extremely impressive. When he’s not creating these dark and unique images, he’s also an essential worker and his job is no joke (despite my best restraint) and helps him to appreciate his time and use his art as an outlet and an escape. A story of talent and humility that we are excited to share with you all. Each story is meant to share, relate and inspire. This is a great example of why we do this each week.
