These vibrant and brilliant bottles from the second annual 1800 Tequila Essential Artist competition are a sight to behold. A limited series, eleven bottles designs were selected from over 15,000 online submissions along with one from Shepard Fairey's design firm Studio Number One as a special edition “celebrity artist” bottle.

In addition to Studio Number One, the eleven artists selected create the series of 12 bottles included StevOramA (Honolulu, HI), the $10,000 Grand Prize Winner whose design was given a starring role in the series — his art was even used in the box design — as well as Ian McGillivray (Brooklyn, NY), Nickelyn Reames (Manteca, CA), danyol (San Francisco, CA), Leyland “Lee” DeVito (Detroit, MI), Danielle Salinas (Bloomfield, NJ), Chad Shore (Atlanta, GA), Mark Sweeney (San Francisco, CA), Branden Tintiangco (San Diego, CA), Chuck Trunks (Los Angeles, CA), and Michelle Villasenor (Atlanta, GA).

Looking through all the submissions at the Essential Artists website, there's a huge amount of really impressive work. Bottles retail for $24.99.
