I think I need to set something straight in this post. You can read my original first paragraph in the comments section, as well as the comment about said paragraph from Mr/Mrs Anonymous. You can also read my reply in the comments section. I feel I need to reiterate my point though. I normally use this blog to write about art shows and personal work. I get asked a lot by people that want to know, what other kind of work do you do? I thought I might use this post to show the diversity, but I think my description of that came off the wrong way for Mr/Mrs Anonymous. I guess that happens when you don't get out too much and socialize. You use the wrong verbage. What I was trying to get across was that I get the opportunity to work on a lot of different and unique jobs that I love contributing to. All I meant from "random", is that I never know what the next job is going to be. That is the best part of the job to me. The randomness of not knowing. Always something different. That's why I chose this job. I don't take my jobs for granted and never have. I'm sorry I gave you the wrong impression Anonymous. Also, if you don't think I put any heart into my work, I don't know what to tell you, Anonymous. Maybe you're looking at another blog, because I bust my ass for every job and love it.
Like I said, before, I took the original paragraph and put it into the comments, if you want to know what this is all about. In other words I want people to know what this rant is about. I don't want to leave anything out, kind of like the way you left your name out, Anonymous.
In closing I just want to reiterate, I had a blast doing this job, as well as working with the advertising company, CKA, to do these wine labels. Reading the opening paragraph again, I guess I can kind of see why you might have thought what you did. Especially if you don't personally kow me. Maybe I just shouldn't post stuff like this anymore. I thought I should open up and add some more random, excuse me, different posts about my work here, but maybe not now. Maybe I should just shut up and not say anything on here if the only comments are going to be negative by anonymous people. Thoughts anyone???????
Here are some more images I did for the same ad agency that was working with the wine people. These were for another local wine company called Aviator wine. They were really hip on having a Vargas-esque type girl for one bottle. The type you might see on old airplane noses.
Here's another example of some more art for some different bottles. I'm not sure which airplane they ended up using below. The black and white planes were done that way so that they could do some kind of fancy embossing for that label.
I still haven't come across the other wine bottles. I bought the Fruit Bomb wine but haven't tried it yet. Still taking my time getting through Dan Aykroyd's new Crystal Head Vodka. By the way, yes, it is signed by Elwood Blues himself. He was in town promoting his vodka a few weeks back. You too will experience the "invisible world" after you get through a whole bottle in one sitting. Good stuff.
Anyway, hope you enjoyed the checking out some of the other kind of art I get to do from time to time. I'll have to dig up some more stuff like that to put up on here. Maybe I can actually start getting more than one post a month again. Later on my fellow alcoholics!
