Vineyard Illustration for Discerning Clients
Stemming from my work in creating the WSJ Portrait style, aka the Hedcut, opportunities arise from discerning clients. These are people who appreciate the refined, engraved look of these illustrations. Here are a few of my portraits, vineyard illustration — of people, places, situations, and even a three-legged horse!
Portrait of a vineyard.
The Catena Winery and Vineyards are a highly-respected brand from Mendoza, Argentina. The illustration was made for a house label.
A portrait of Laura Catena, Vintner, for the label of one of the house’s offerings.
Napa Vineyard Illustration
In a similar vine, the Grgich Vineyards, of Napa fame, commissioned me to commemorate one of the emeritus founders. This stipple portrait of Miljenko “Mike” Grgich was produced for a special, small batch Chardonnay label:
Here is the original portrait art…
Now, for a situation or two! I produced several illustrations for advertisements on behalf of Pennsylvania’s alcoholic beverage bureau. These were portraits of people enjoying wine— who wouldn’t?
Vineyard Horse Illustration
Lastly, I offer a curious sight: a Three-legged horse winning a race. This was for a wine label called “100 to 1” What are the chances I’ll spot it on the shelves sometime soon? I’m hoping for a 50-50 shot! …or at least, a glass of Malbec.
