Meet the Artist: Melissa Merrill

Please join us for this meet-n-greet with local artist Melissa Merrill, a scientific illustrator and bug enthusiast. This event will feature a group of tiny, special guests… the UGA Entomology Insect Zoo! 

Merrill joined the Creature Comforts crew back in 2015 while working on her three undergraduate degrees at the University of Georgia, studying Scientific Illustration, Entomology, and Biology. She has designed several limited release bottle labels for the brewery including Mutualism, Transmission, Triangulation, and Booger Hill*.

Created with a unique paint mixture made with each beer’s ingredients, Merrill’s bottle designs merge her passions for art and science. The labels, like much of her personal work, reflect a careful blend of spirited abstraction and precise, methodical rendering.

The Insect Zoo will be wrangled by the Uga BugDawgs, who will be available for any questions our curious customers may have. This will be a fun event for all ages– you don’t want to miss it!
