Happy Art by Alan Phillips

Jacksonville Beach, FL

Nationally recognized commercial artist Alan Phillips paints a watercolor still life featuring Happy Vodka which was featured in the July issue of Waters Edge Magazine. Phillips is known for creating beautiful and stunning art gracing the pages of The New York Times, Boston Globe, National Geographic, Tennis, Golf Illustrated, Snow Country, Polo, Field & Stream, Reader’s Digest, Shooting Sportsman.

Phillips has created over 100 book jacket covers working for Random House, Doubleday, Easton Press, Western Publishing, GK Hall which included the story of "My Dog Skip" which then made it to the big screen and Children of the Dust made for TV movie.

Among the artist’s favorites have been an ongoing commission of classic edition series book illustration that ranges from Frost to Faulkner, Kipling to Kerouac along with the children’s book he illustrated, Kittens Need Someone To Love which is cataloged at The Library of Congress.

“This is the second time that I have featured that winking Happy Vodka bottle in my art…” says Phillips, who grins confidently with a glimmer in his eye as he pauses, “…the first was of a beautiful female nude that was done as a gift for C. J. Eiras, the owner of the brand!” That work is proudly displayed in Eiras’ own office, nestled among his other works of art collected over the years.

We are sure that both paintings will make many people “Happy” when viewing them!
