Death before Bad Wine (#138)

Damn straight!

I’ve been playing with this concept in my head for a while as I am one of the artists in the ‘Artisty of Wine” exhibition/auction piece for the Coonawarra Cabernert Celebrations. Essentially, 30 odd artists are given a labelless bottle of Cooawarra Cabernet Sauvignon in which to “art” up!

Mine will hopefully look something like this.

Life is too Short… (#69)


Wine... Best. Drink. Ever.

Those who know me personally know how much I love red wine. I’m lucky enough to live near Coonawarra and have a few clients and close friends who work in the wine industry so I’m always kept in good supply!


The Nightcap (#24)

Time for a drink!

Today’s illustration had to be done sans Wacom board while I’m in my home town of Naracoorte for the weekend. My wife Elle is working a weekend shift at the local retirement village, our daughter is visiting my sister with my mum in Adelaide and I’m racing in the Kingston S.E. Triathlon on Sunday… all go!

I love owls and once our new baby is born (6 weeks to go!) I’m going to draw up a nice big tattoo with two little owls representing my daughter Neave and Baby Hood #2 and get it done somewhere nice and prominent! The owl in today’ illustration is enjoying a nice glass of wine and I’m going to dedicate this image to my business partner Simone, the only person I know that drinks more night-time wine than me! 🙂

… and now my hands hurt because I’m not used to using to drawing with the pen tool and the MacBook Pro trackpad anymore!
