SILVER OAK Tower Illustration 2012
Silver Oak Winery in Napa Valley celebrated their 40th Anniversary this year by going on the road and pouring their (excellent) wines at various wine events. They asked me to create an illustration for their Anniversary Logo. Here is the process we went through. At first they wanted a whimsical approach but we soon moved away from that direction. I wanted to depict the legendary tower in a more dramatic fashion.
I worked in pencil on nice pulpy watercolor paper.
They were great to work with, paid me well and gave me four cases of wine.
When we have our Behance NETWORK party (in Oslo or Berlin or Tangerang or Tbilisi)
I'LL BRING THE WINE.
