My husband and I recently made a beer that we named "Narcissistic Bitch."
There are reasons for that name: it is, on the one hand, a play on "Arrogant Bastard Ale," but it's also a nod to the exact names I was called this past year because I dared--and still dare--to write about teaching! (Needless to say, it has been one hellish, crazy year.)
I decided on an homage to Wonder Woman (it's not precisely WW) for the label because Doug has always said that I remind him of this particular female superhero. That's sweet...but it's a lot to live up to, and certainly, I look less like Wonder Woman with every passing day. Still, I'll take it. Wouldn't you?
I drew this label with Staedtler markers and washed over them with a bit of watercolor. I had to do that, to get the skin tone, but the marker ran a bit. It turned out pretty well, nevertheless.
I had no gold paint, so I 3D'ed it with actual glitter. This is a scanned color copy of the original artwork.
Narcissistic Bitch was, without a doubt, the best beer we've ever made. It was a chocolate porter, but honestly, not really chocolaty or weird. It was like Winter Welcome (if you've had that)--just a bit richer.
We will make more soon. In the meantime, I get many requests to see the label. I scanned it and I am not all that happy with the scan, but it's the best I can do here.
Happy Icy February!
