Each year the club works with the winemaster, Dominick Chirichillo, to press, barrel, blend, and bottle fantastic wines from grapes grown around Northern California. Some of the wine which has been pressed and barreled, is left over - or "orphaned" - and the winery has a tasting out of the barrels for the general public. You can buy a barrel to bottle yourself at the winery, or, if you're lucky, you can find others to go in on a barrel and split it.
We were lucky enough to find two barrels we really loved and some partners to get a quarter of each. In return for the favor of doing a split, I'm going to design their wine labels. Below are some of the labels I've designed for our and our partner's wines along with some others.

New label for my wife's Hard Cider, and also a demonstration piece for my Digital Illustration class I teach at Cañada College.
The "Tooth Whitening" idea takes off from the fact that my wife, Camille, is a dental hygienist, and also from her namesake, Camille, a.k.a Marie Duplessis, who was a famous nineteenth century courtesan and the inspiration for Giuseppe Verdi's opera, La Traviata. She is quoted as saying "Lying keeps my teeth white."

Dark Angels is an open-ended series of renderings using the iconographic imagery of angels classical Western European painting as a starting point to re-imagine their representation as another kind of being, one with darker resonances and in opposition to the traditional representation of angles as beings of "light". Check it out, it's here: darkangels.khazar.com

So, I give up on 3D movies. For now, anyway.
