Beer Glass Olympic Rings

August 10th, 2012

Beer Glass Olympic Rings

I just posted an illustration tribute to the 2012 Olympic Games.

I was thinking about the famous Olympic rings when a vision of a beer glass magically making colored rings on a bar jumped into my head.

And of course, that called for a little Olympic swimmer in the beer glass.

Hope you enjoy it.
