Cognac and Crime
A project for Wordage Weekly
This Piece is a drawing done for Wordage Weekly, a weekly blog featuring illustration inspired by literary excerpts. This was my submission for week four. The quote is as follows:

"The perfect crime, like a perfect cognac, should be swirled and savored,and with what Decker called 'that strange quirk of vanity characteristic of the creative crook.'" - R. A.Scotti

The concept of the peice is to illustration the interplay of crime and cognac in a typographic manner. I created the drawing so it can be read right side up, or upside-down. The drawing is done completely in pen, and measures approximately 15" x 22".  Enjoy!
