Guinness Pin Up by Grim-Clavera Guinness Pin Up by Grim-Clavera
Background is a stock image by pixeltool-stock
check out his awesome gallery


Taken from wikipedia: "Guinness's iconic stature is partly due to its advertising. The most notable and recognisable series of adverts was created by Benson's advertising, primarily drawn by the artist John Gilroy, in the 1930s and 40s. "

The famous Guinness ads were nice and innocent drawings that featured mostly animals (like the iconic toucan) or typical middle class men, accompanied by short catch-phrases like "My Goodness, My Guinness!" or "Lovely Day For a Guinness"
I decided to add a little spice to the old Guinness ads with this retro American style pin up homage to my favorite Irish Beer =)


Just out of curiosity, would anyone be interested in purchasing a print of this ad?

Buy a beer: Legal if you're drinking age.

Buy a woman: Get arrested and possibly catch an STD.

I'll stick with the beer.

A couple of months ago I walked into a pub no farther than 40 min from where I live and there I find this very artwork that I made nearly 5 years ago, about a 100 times larger, hanged on the wall. what do you suppose I should do???

Be flattered?

It's comprised of a stock background, stock pin-up girl, Guinness image (I assume downloaded from their own advertising material?) and fonts.

There isn't anything you could claim ownership of within that, and in the case of one or more elements you may not be able to claim any copyright - while you definitely don't hold any over the Guinness logo or artwork.

Nice ad!
Other than the background and fonts, is the rest (the girl and the Guinness glass) your own drawings/designs?

the different fonts make sense because there's a different kinda "mood" to the way each part is said

Nicely put together. Just be careful, Guiness is rather 'careful' about the use of their image.
I'm pretty sure jeep is too.

the only suggestion i can even think of making,
is that the bottom of the glass isn't entirely round and kinda flattens out weirdly
but otherwise this is quite an effective ad,
in my opinion :D

Oh crap, I see what you mean. I can't believe I didn't see that one.
It's like in those "Where's Waldo?" games where you can't find the guy, but after you do, you can't help but notice him even in the quickest glance.

Is the ad effective enough that you would join me for an imaginary pint
in some imaginary haven?

and that is not some imaginary heaven,
it should be within young 2008 :D

I flipped through your gallery, you did some awesome pieces. I wouldn't mind getting one of those engraved on me body.
Good luck, I hope you'll make it in the tat biz...
Then I'll invite you for an actual pint of Guinness ;)
