Art and cigars has always shared a certain kinship, and now Manhattan tobacconist Cigar Inn is offering a novel product that strengthens their ties: custom-painted cigar boxes.
Customers who purchase a box of cigars from the shop can, for an extra $20, have an image of their choosing painted onto the box’s top. Whether you want a personal photograph, famous painting or something else, the personalized paintings take about one to two weeks to complete.
All paintings are being done by New York-based artist Elena Yakovleva. Yakovleva, a graduate of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, is the talented artist that Cigar Inn commissioned to paint a mural for its 1016 2nd Avenue location.
To submit a photograph, purchase a box of cigars from either Cigar Inn’s 2nd Avenue location or the one at 1314 1st Avenue.
