A little BUBBLY...

DECEMBER 30, 2008
Hi-res scan... whoopdie-doo!
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.

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!)
His royal bubbly
 Second I got sketching... I thought of the cork as the king.
I see a few extra bubbles...
Of course as my dirty mind works It became the emperor naked swimming in a bubbly bath.
Hmppff!
 Then just as an afterthought The bottle as king.
The left looking profile worked best.
I sent off the email and heard back... they wanted the bottle as king. So here he is... All hail the king!
Happy New Year to all of you!
