Beer for art’s sake

New Zealand singer Ladyhawke, 30 and painter/illustrator Sarah Larnach, 30, have redesigned labels for Beck’s beer bottles as part of beer brand’s Music Inspired Art project, labels which feature watercolours of a howling wolf and a blindfolded Ladyhawke with her namesake. The limited-edition bottles will be released this month in the UK. The friends are interviewed in The Independent on Sunday in which each describes meeting the other. Sydney-based Larnach is best known for her watercolour and ink drawings, which feature on the covers of Ladyhawke’s records and in her music videos. Larnach: “As soon as I met Pip [Brown] I knew she was going to be really significant, not just in my life, but in general, and I knew I’d do anything to help her. Maybe I’ve helped her a bit, but she has helped me a great deal.”
