Another piece of the branding for the Home of the Brave restaurant in Toronto. The whole branding campaign is a tongue-in-cheek jab at classic American imagery.

Love the grit texture throughout @Jon Contino
Love this one Jon
nice to see the effort on that one. Good work. I especially like the arrows. Good twist on a classic.
Nice take on Ben's original. Only 5 pieces?
@Mark Chronister The number of pieces and arrows have some significance to the brand which is a little more obscured to the viewer as a hidden meaning. There are 3 versions of the snake and all have 6 arrows. The 5 pieces in this version has a unique meaning as well.
I like that. Great concept. Love the hidden meaning part.
Hate to be that dude but when I first saw it, I thought it was something for Five Boro Skateboards. Looks very familiar to this…
@Neil Magadzia I already had this conversation with the 5 Boro dudes. It's a vertical join or die snake on a black background. Of course it's going to look similar, but the idea isn't exactly unique. It's a design that fits the branding and isn't a primary element, not to mention my illustration is completely original and their's an actual satire using the elements from the Franklin illustration from 200+ years ago. The reference is one of the most famous and iconic American images in history. There can be more than one version of it, don't you think?
Beautiful piece man. The Carnita/HOTB guys sure know how to pick their artists! (and their cooks!)
@Jon Contino I disagree completely… there can only ever be one version of anything, especially in the world of design. I'm just kidding, all I was saying was that it caught my eye and I thought you were doing something with 5 Boro. I'm very familiar with their stuff and when I didn't see their name anywhere, I was confused. Either way, I think its great and that all of your work is incredible. Sorry about the confusion.
@Neil Magadzia Haha it's all good. Sorry, I got a little on edge about it because earlier someone made an ignorant comment trying to act like I stole it from them, not even knowing it was a satire of a Classic American icon. It's a real head-slapper!
I just got a tattoo of the join or die snake. Love this.
i want a shirt of this
YES HE CHOPPED THAT EVIL SERPENT INTO FOURS. bad ass.
