Lucy Rose Creates Fantastical Scene for Don Papa Rum

Posted in: Artists, Design, Packaging

Commissioned by Stranger and Stranger, Lucy Rose has illustrated a limited edition canister for Don Papa Rum of Sugarlandia, the jungle that the brand world exists in. Creating two colourways, with one used for Don Papa Rum and the other for Don Papa Baroko, Lucy’s work features an array of resplendent wildlife and magical creatures to get lost in.

How did you create the artwork?
I started by drawing quite a detailed sketch to show the client the composition. Once everyone was happy I moved on to the coloured scene, drawing each element and building up my layers digitally, trying to create a good sense of depth and mystery. I had to think carefully about the colours, making sure they were rich, sophisticated and magical but not child-like.

What did you enjoy most about the project?

I absolutely loved every part of this project, the brief I feel was a perfect fit for my atmospheric, dark and rich colour style.


We couldn’t agree more. Lucy’s work is on sale now.
