I'm happy to announce that the great crew at Iconic Brands gave me a wonderful opportunity to sculpt and revamp the bottle for the unmistakable, award winning, DEADHEAD RUM.
It all started back in 2013 at the Invitational Deadhead Rum bottle art competition. Myself and 9 other artists altered the original design and they were put on display. Later, I was approached by Iconic Brands to sculpt a new updated bottle design that incorporated some of their favorite elements from several of the submissions, including my own....hence the 2.0 version.
This is an established brand....we needed to stay close to the original design but add a little flair and character. The new bottle has: enlarged eyes, a furrowed brow, DEADHEAD logo on the forehead, reworked mouth and nose, more human-like ears, a scar on the back of the head.... and "drunk-O-meter" holes on the back (so you can see when your running low...or brag to your friends).
This has been a great ride! ... and there is a lot more to come (still keeping my mouth shut). This new bottle should be showing up on your local shelves soon...so keep your eyes open. If your local place does not carry it you can order from the website: www.DeadHeadRum.com
I thought a comparison might be fun so here are some photos of the two of them side by side.
As always Thank you for your continued support!
