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!
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!
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!
