Some Drinks are for Mommys and Daddys

My self and creative writer, Jordan Gabriel, decided over a few beers one evening it would be interesting to create a children’s book for parents. A few beers in we formed an experimental creative team dubbed Young Corruptibles and a book called Some Drinks are for Mommys and Daddys – a light-hearted attempt at a “badass” children’s book. With full creative freedom we had a blast dreaming up the various characters and rhyming couplets. Below are a few examples of the various character illustrations.

Book Cover

We printed a few prototypes and handed them out to our circles for feedback. Most appreciated it’s ridiculousness 😀

Curtain Call

Example of some of the parents depicted throughout the book.

Tattoo Dad

Some drinks help Daddy when it’s time to schnooze. Others lead to adventures like piercings and tattoos.

Nerdy Mom

Some drinks help digest; Mommy calls aperitif. Sometimes they end quickly; she calls them quite brief.

The Full Cast

All of the various parents, in no particular order!


We thought it would be fun and fitting to use a very bold and clashing colour palette.
