Wine Republic magazine editorial


The third and final illustration I did for the latest edition of Wine Republic magazine. Again, the focus was on literature in Argentina, and the Argie grandaddy of it all, Borges.

This illustration was a bit of a departure for me, trying to visualise the world and subjects that a writer creates.  I had an idea in my head about what to do, but trying to draw all these tiny little fiddly elements would take forever and, oh, did I mention the deadline? Yes it was really tight, a couple of days to do three illustrations. So I decided to have a bit of fun with this one, and with an ancient book of copyright free clip art I bought in Italy years ago, I enjoyed bashing this out. I knew that Italian purchase would come in useful one day, and it’s only taken about five years to get round to using it.
