Gin Tonic Artwork

Self-initiated project and personal tribute to the city of Barcelona.

For the last 4 years I have been lucky enough to visit friends and family and spend over two months in the city of Barcelona. Everyone who lives there knows that gin tonics are the drink of choice, and also knows that we don’t call them gin and tonics.

Recently I read an article about the passion for gin tonics in Spain and about some bars in Barcelona specialised on this type of drink. The article called “Gin and Tonic, A Love Story” gave me the inspiration to create this piece.

The artwork features several ingredients used in the elaboration of Gin and the drink. You’ll notice some arbequina olives as well, maybe not commonly associate it with Gin, but they are the gold ingredient of one of our national gins called “Gin Mare”, a Mediterranean Gin that I like and I wanted to give support.

The artwork is built entirely in vectors.

The lettering is based on my own copperplate calligraphy and then added weight by hand and vectorised in Illustrator.
