Last of the Summer Wine




























I recently completed an illustration project for Brandever, the specialist brand developers for the global wine industry.

Brandever wished to create a series of circa 1900's fruit wine labels that celebrate the old fashioned style of Fruit Crate Label art. With ten different wines currently in production at this winery, each line would feature a different illustration produced by nine different illustrators, other than me.

This blueberry dessert wine, called Sweet Nothings, obviously suggested a love theme and I sketched out various 'love' scenarios, including a Romeo and Juliette scene and swans, the symbol of fidelity.
























You can click on the illustration below to see a reasonably sized version of the final illustration without the branding. Once you've done that, we can go and sit in my aviary and have a glass of how's yer father.
