Winter Welcome Ale

Samuel Smith’s Winter Welcome Ale is here! With a new illustration each year, this year with tobogganers, there’s a lot that goes into this packaging which makes the contents even more pleasing and one off. Not your average beer or brewery.

Consume or Conserve, 2010 from Weiki Somers Studio

I have this friend who said that he didn’t care what happened to his ashes. Rather than debate the body and soul or sentimentality to cemeteries or urns – I instead thought of the most utilitarian thing one could have your ashes made into – a cinder block. Ok, I — Continue reading
