Back-street boozer illustrated

Regular client Tobacco Factory also have a hand in one of Bristol's best back-street boozers - The Barley Mow (not to be confused with the one in Bedminster, Bristol). Via them, I had the rather lovely commission to visualise the regular pub happenings to fit an A6 promotional flyer format, complete with a simple, quirky map targeting some key local areas.

The odd looking zebra is based on the pub's mascot - a charming, vintage wooden toy zebra.

Making sure this was printed on high-quality, matt, thick pulp-board stock was important to the aesthetic of the flyer's hand-drawn, keeping-it-local and lo-fi focus.
