Open That Bottle
MARCH 15, 2008
They had asked for hands opening a bottle using a corkscrew, but when I got mine out to photograph, I liked the celebratory pose it made and added a question mark to show how doubtful many people were that the wine would be any good. The descriptions of the wines that didn't make it were the most fun, "smelled like air let out of a basketball".
The two drawings on the inside ran in b&w, a real disappointment. Still it was fun to draw.
White wine memories.
I had pictured doing a very graphic treatment but the folks at the WSJ wanted some perspective to the glass and a more painterly technique.
