The M and N in Minnesota Breweries

Artist: Jeffrey Nelson, United States
Artist Statement: This M and N is made with the negative space left over from lettering every single brewery in the state of Minnesota. I did the layout and handlettering on thick and creamy sheets of Stillman & Birn Delta Series paper with a Pentel brush pen and good old Sharpie markers. This project was commissioned by The Growler magazine to be used on merchandise ranging from t-shirts to blankets.

MEDIA: Ink and (alcohol-based) markers
SURFACE: Delta Series – Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – Ivory – Cold Press Finish

Jeffrey Nelson is an illustrator based out of St. Paul, Minnesota. He does business as Jephemera because 1.) his name is Jeff and the nature of his work is ephemeral, and, 2.) Do you know how many Jeff Nelsons there are in Minnesota? His areas of concentration are handlettering, murals, maps, and general illustration. His local S&B dealer is Wet Paint.
