Whitenack’s Wonder Ale

You know you’re an artist when… you buy a soda, and the primary reason is for the bottle.

I re-labeled a glass bottle and did a bit of sanding to take off the labels on the neck and bottle cap to whip up an old fashioned “snake oil”.

A friend was feeling a bit under the weather so to cheer him up I decided to make this artwork for him. The label reads “Whitenack’s Wonder Ale” Only 10 cents a bottle and a guaranteed cure… CURES melancholy, aches, bruises, cuts, pains, baldness, deafness, bunions… prepared from the pure genuine article of dehydrated water… RESTORES: vim. vigor, vitality, youth.
Click on either the bottle or label pic to see a larger version.

May your sharpies always have ink and stay sharp- Alan
