Pabst Blue Ribbon Can Art

It MF Happened!

August 31, 2019 is the official date when I saw my design on a Pabst Blue Ribbon in the wild! I couldn’t believe it. I was measuring a wall for an upcoming mural I’ll be painting…AND THERE IT WAS! ON A TABLE! ACROSS THE ROOM! I walked over to the nice lady who was enjoying her lunch, and asked if I could take a picture of her can. She was confused. Naturally. I then explained that I designed the can. She was stoked and asked for my autograph. SO I SIGNED THE CAN! The PBR was a little sweaty, so it was a weak signature, but still…I DID IT! I told her I felt like a musician hearing their song on the radio for the first time. And she was nice enough to agree with my analogy. After that, the nice lady hugged me, said congratulations, and went on her way. It was magical. Now I know how Taylor Swift feels. Pret-tay cool.

I mentioned earlier that i'll be painting a mural, and I can't wait to share the finished product with everyone. I was lucky enough to win the PBRart Can Contest, and even luckier that Pabst supports and rallies behind artist. I have a fun couple of weeks coming up, and I thought i’d document the journey! I hope you stick around :)

Cheers Bruh,
