PBR Recycled Beer Can ~ 2 of 2 photos

continued from last photo:


This is a photo photoshopped into an illustration. Its a keychain I made from a recycled aluminum can. Yes, its a beer can I found on the ground and washed out. And that is my spare house key! I adore the color red.


Certain beer brands I tend to find more as litter on the ground then others...the cheaper brands of beers are the ones I find toossed out. Why is this? Do poorer folks not give a damn about littering or recycling? I jstudy litter and trash a lot, so any thoughts on this would be great.


Brands I find most, on the ground...Miller, PBR, Tecata.

    The red on the can and the red on the key harmonize well.

    That was the intent ;-)

    i think you are prob right in a way.... i think both ends LITTER, but it's the definition of litter that would need to be examined...... people who tend to drink "higher" end beers tend to do so in higher end establishment, in private, in home, and in exclusive social settings.... thus their trash is picked up by others called wait staff

    The people who toss cans and gum wrappers on the ground seem to also dump their car ash trays on the ground too. So many cigarette butts in a heap! Makes me nuts!

    I have seen a lot of unusual stuff tossed out in chicago and then in the forest preserves as well as mall parking lots, grocery store lots, street gutters, and trash cans.

    One of the strangest things along the Chicago River inside city limits, back in the woods- large piles - carcasses of rotting roosters ...I do not know if they were for Santeria, or cock fighting. They were in various stages of decomp...so it was an ongoing thing. that was near the various piles of illegally dumped landscape / yard waste.

    Ugh, the roosters much really smell !!

    Wow what a find! My dad used to dring that....from the land of sky blue water? Wasn't that part of the jingle?
  • Mary Anne Enriquez 6y

    Hattie...I remember that jingle too! But not sure it was the Pabst jingle. I don't think it was. Wasn't the Pabst one old time barbershop quartet singing?

    Geez, its too early in the morning for my 50 plus year old memory to work. More coffee please. LOL.

    And that would be Hamms beer... from the land of sky blue waters.

    How do you stop the can from having sharp edges? I would love to try something with cans.
  • Mary Anne Enriquez 5y

    I use die cutting machines, jeweler's files, and special final clear coatings to achieve this effect. NO SHARP edges.

    I love this! You are so talented!
  • Mary Anne Enriquez 4y

    Ha ha...I have only made one...I should make a lot of them shouldn't I?

    the PBR can is such a beautiful icon of graphic design and branding.
