About Georgia Haines:
Hi, I’m Georgia and I’m an illustrator based in Northamptonshire. As far as my illustration goes, I’d say I most like creating pieces that have sci-fi, eerie or mystical elements to them; whether that be a digital illustration or something involving printmaking.
When I’m not hunched over my desk covered in ink, I like to spend time outdoors, and if that involves a pint of beer in a pub garden then even better! However, if it’s pouring down with rain then I don’t mind spending time indoors listening to my favourite records – typical art student, I know!
“When I first found out about First Chop’s ONE range of single hop pale ales, I thought it was really different and inventive, and something I’d not heard of other breweries doing. “It conjured up an image in my mind of the beer version of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, with crazy robots and machinery creating these unique and exciting beers. For Hallertau Blanc I kept the image reasonably simple to be in keeping with the simplicity of the beer which only uses a single hop. The image started as a sketch which I worked on digitally to create the final image.”
“My first illustration for First Chop’s ONE range of single hop pale ale was inspired by the idea of a wacky beer factory and I wanted to make all my illustrations fit together.
So going down this route, I decided to illustrate Styrian Wolf in the jaws of a mechanical... well, wolf! This illustration has a splash of deep pink to coincide with the branding of this particular ale.”
“Sticking with the theme of a wacky, inventive beer factory my inspiration for First Chop’s next release in their ONE single hop pale ale range; Galaxy, came from the imagery of old space invader video games and the radar scanners that you see in old action movies.
“This illustration started out with a generic sketch of a computer with a beer seeking radar on its screen that I then embellished with lots of over-the-top laboratory equipment. As with my other illustrations, I added a splash of deep navy blue to match the colour of Galaxy’s packaging.”
