Awesome Article About Boulevard Label Art

As I've said many times on this blog, I was lucky enough to marry a Kansas City gal, and thus became a fan of Boulevard Brewing Company. The January 9 issue of the Kansas City Star featured a great, visually stunning article on Payton Kelly, the in-house artist responsible for the eye-catching labels and boxes that make Boulevard's brews so easy to spot on the shelves. It's worth your time to read it, and even more worth your time to check out the photos.

Even more important, if you have some way of getting a copy of the paper version of the article, you should do so. While the online version has more photos, the paper version has a really well-done layout, a thing of beauty which will be lost if newspapers ever completely die.
