This was an interesting project I did last year, but because I was so busy doing the project I didn’t blog about the finished labels. So I’m putting up the images now. These photos were taken by my friend John Rice who is a really good photographer. I’ve been thinking about the project because I have been drinking the wine- and loving it! (not all at once mind you)
In this project I was Commissioned to make a series of linocuts which told the story of the winemakers life – Damion North of the Jack Russel Wine Company.
The winemaker is in the Yarra Valley the Graphic Designer (who designed the layout and the text) is in Melbourne and I am in Perth. It all went together without a hitch, even though I had no face to face contact with either. It was a great project, I loved doing it.

And this is from starting out with the commission
