We are looking for eye-catching artwork for a hard cider label, we are open to illustrations, sketches, whatever you can come up with that feels mysterious, unknown and slightly scary or foreboding. Please read the description for the label below and come up with what it makes you think of. We are open to a variety of looks, mysterious, mischievous, unknown, ect. We would like to avoid a dark or evil look but will consider anything submitted. The character could be human, humanoid, animal or whatever, male or female or both. It could be slightly hidden in the landscape, or totally exposed. Coloring could be grayscale to totally colored, just trying to avoid a super dark look. Open to a variety of landscapes, woods, desserts even an abandoned city...
The final version will need to integrates the required legal text as well as the text for the description, however feel free to offer illustrations or artwork devoid of the required text in your preliminary designs until we pick some designs that we like.
Text to eventually be included:

(2) CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES IMPAIRS YOUR ABILITY TO DRIVE A CAR OR OPERATE MACHINERY, AND MAY CAUSE HEALTH PROBLEMS. CONTAINS SULFITES

Other text to included wherever convenient:
6.9% ALC BY VOL
"FROM TREE TO TAP"
PRODUCED & BOTTLED BY
EASTMAN'S FORGOTTEN CIDERS, L.L.C.
The descriptive write up should say:
The Untamed, the Unknown, the Unseen; The Wildling exists in our hopes and our fears, it tickles our senses in the darkness of night, it teases our emotions with its elusiveness. The unexplored and hidden places still harbor these magnificent beings, just out of sight and out of reach. The Wildlings endeavors to rise from their obscurity and take back that which is rightfully theirs. This cider embodies their soul.
It should incorporate this quote somewhere on the label:
The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. -- H. P. Lovecraft
We also request that the included logo should be found somewhere on the label.
If room allows this may also be added as text:
At Forgotten Ciders the old is made new again with rare apples that have originated from throughout the world, some from hundreds of years deep in history. We grow, pick and press our own apples. No sugars or concentrates added. The mixed flavors of these apples will take you back to the forgotten years of hard ciders
