Illustration Friday - "Multiple"

At first this Illustration Friday illo started with a cowboy at the saloon with the bartender serving multiple drinks to him.  I didn't like the design of the cowboy and liked the design of this guy- so I simplified it down to just him.  He's serving multiple drinks, with multiple bottles behind him- I think I over explained it again.  I did this in gouache.

Over explain? Oh I don't think so!

Great illustration and idea. Love the solid colour and stylised bottles.

ohhh man! you really need the IRON GIANT sitting on your shoulder every time you bash an idea in your head, to growl at you and say "YOU'RE NOT OVEREXPLAINING. GREAT WORK. KEEP MOVING FORWARD!"

Very nice work. I like the fact that he is smoking a cigar while serving all those drinks.

Man! I am really enjoying your colour pallets, your style is rockin'!

I like that you decided to focus on just the bartender, and used the white outlines for the bottles. Fantastic work!
