Agave Inspiration in progress
I’m honored to be one of ten San Francisco artists selected to turn a Herradura tequila barrel into a piece of art as part of a national competition with a $100,000 top prize. The competition is going to be stiff (like a shot of tequila), so I’m going to have to make my art as Todd-Bermanesque as possible. That means I’m going to tap into the group mind for some creative crowd-sourcing.
Last night, a group of adventurous spirits joined me at Tres Tequila Lounge to drink and draw. Mike, a representative from Herradura, treated everyone to a flight of tequila and a margarita, and a large serving of knowledge about what gives each variety its distinctive flavor.
Then, we drew.
Stay tuned for more posts about the process, images of our findings, and how this all relates to arts education.
