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!

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:

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.
