New Style #9: Le Diable Vert

Le Diable Vert closeup
I saw a blog "covered" where illustrators "cover" a comic book cover in their own style.
I was inspired to do my own cover of a vintage 1906 poster by Leonetto Cappiello, for a wine called Maurin Quina.

I changed it to an absinthe, and with the help of my French friend, David, he helped me come up with:
Le Diable Vert, (The Green Devil).
"Laissez sortir votre diable" means "Let your devil come out"

Apparently there really is an absinthe called "Le Diable Vert" I need to try it.
