BeauJoubert Vineyards

beaujoubertSo I ummed and I aahed a lot about what I was going to submit to the BeauJoubert wine label “competition” they had going.

The prize is pretty awesome, I think we get some wine and sales commissions but the big reason I entered and would LOVE to win it is because, well, my drawing would be on a wine bottle! That right there is frigging epic.

So in the end I chose a swallow and I was contemplating how to go about it and stuck in traffic one day it hit me… what’s the best way to design a wine label? With wine of course! So I convinced my housemate to leave me some wine (not as easy as it sounds) and I used it as a medium (as in I used it as paint) which is also not as easy as it sounds btw because wine doesn’t actually show a colour while you’re painting you have to wait for it to dry before you can see any actual colour.

The design is open for voting on their facebook page and it would be too kind of you if you decided to head on over and give it a like. There are some other absolutely amazing submissions entered as well so give them a browse to 🙂beaujoubertlabelsubmission
