Mr. Jack’s great passion was making whiskey. He spent a long time crafting every drop, giving his whiskey a distinctive character that’s known the world over.
Now it’s your turn to share your passion.
Jack Daniel’s invites you to create a unique piece of art using one of our handcrafted single barrels. The barrel is your canvas, to do with what you will. Check out the attached short film. Let your imagination run wild. Then submit your concept to email@example.com by 13th May 2010.

“AGENCY LOOKING FOR SINGAPORE BASED ILLUSTRATORS TO WORK ON A TELEVISION COMMERCIAL TO BE BROADCASTED ON NATIONAL TELEVISION!”

We are currently exploring many different styles of illustrations so please do send us a few examples of what you can do!
Interested parties can drop us an email of a short write up about yourself and your portfolio of works. Do include your contact info ( hp number, email address, Website /Web Folio )
