The art for this label presented a unique challenge because it was not to be a highly detailed landscape drawing but a stylized, gestural rendering based on examples provided by the client yet it had to portray the environment in the Oaxaca region of Mexico.
Many thumbnails were provided to narrow down a direction for the landscape after a lot of research and reading about the region of Oaxaca. In the end we blended two separate illustrations for the final front label and provided more artwork for the rear label.
