A little BUBBLY...
DECEMBER 30, 2008
The first time I had a bottle of Dom Perignon I was 19 or 20 yrs. old with a naked woman in Paris. Doesn't get much better than that.
Hi-res scan... whoopdie-doo!
I was recently asked by Time UK to do an illustration for the "King" of champagnes, Dom Perignon. First I asked for a bottle for inspiration... all I got was a hi-res scan. Dang! It worked in the past with a Châteauneuf-du-Pape. (If that art director reads this: it was delicious!)
Second I got sketching... I thought of the cork as the king.
His royal bubbly
Of course as my dirty mind works It became the emperor naked swimming in a bubbly bath.
I see a few extra bubbles...
Then just as an afterthought The bottle as king.
I sent off the email and heard back... they wanted the bottle as king. So here he is... All hail the king!
The left looking profile worked best.
Happy New Year to all of you!
