Introduction

As lovers of gaming, alchemy and the occult we couldn’t refuse ourselves when the idea to draw vintage style potion bottles entered our heads. With us both having a background in Graphic Design and a specialization in advertising it has given us a great appreciation for vintage ads and propaganda art. We had a lot of fun researching old snake oil salesmen ads, ads for ethers, potions, elixirs and so many other wonderfully descriptively written ads. With this basic design principal laid out in front of us, we knew what we had to do. Make a poster that could be the type of ad you would see in an old RPG video game, you know if they had ads.!

On each poster, you will see what the bottle contains, what it does, how often to take it? and how much the bottle contains? To say we had a lot of fun deciding all of this is an understatement.

Handmade by us we learned a lot while making these screenprints, such as how to align tough alignments and mixing our own colours to name a couple. Printed on French pop-tone paper in Liquorice Black, with metallic silver ink and a beautiful hand mixed antique brass to give it that vintage look.

It was a lot of fun to make a couple pieces that mix this idea of advertising and the arcane together, and we hope to add more to the collection in the future!

As you can probably tell we had a lot of fun with this series and tried to get really creative with some of the details like how Health is 2 Litres which would equal 8 Cups of water. Using the symbology of hearts and the health cross to reinforce the concept of healing. We made a conscious decision to avoid the classic red and blue motif most commonly associated with health and mana, to try and give this series a more classy and vintage look for all of us adults who grew up playing video games.

Mana Potion

• 11" x 14" - Two colour screenprint
• Printed on 100lb. French Pop Tone - Black Liquorice Paper
• Open edition, handmade & signed by Fabled Creative

On each poster you will see what the bottle contains in this case Mana Potion, what it does? It’s magic magnifying, how often to take it? As needed and how much the bottle contains? 13 fluid ounces. To say we had a lot of fun deciding all of this is an understatement. I’m sure that it’s a little obvious that we picked 13 as the measurement since the number has ties to the occult and magic. Also the usage of moons and stars to summon up magical imagery on the bottle.
