Chris Wormell illustrates stamps celebrating brewing on Jersey.

Chris Wormell has been commissioned by Jersey Post to design a set of six stamps and related material celebrating the brewing on Jersey and more specifically, St Anne’s Brewery. Chris has illustrated the various stages of the brewing process in his instantly recognisable style, approaching the images with the same craft and care as the brewers on jersey approach their beer!

“The challenge was to come up with six interesting images. Ingredients could look nice, a pint of beer always looks nice! But the in between bit (the inside of a modern brewery) is basically lots of pipes and tanks. Not hugely aesthetic. I worked with Rebekah Matheson at Jersey Post and together we came up with the content of each of the images, and though I wasn’t sure how successful they’d be, I think they work really well as stamps.”

The images were made using what Chris calls “a digital version of lino cutting”; scanning printed coloured layers into photoshop and cutting into them with variously modified eraser tools.

 

“Stamps are always great to work on!”

Early in his career, he had the honour of working with the late Will Eisner during which time he gained a clear understanding of storytelling in pictures. Eoin feels most at home drawing people, action scenes and anything with an element of the fantastical.
