Illustration Friday: journey

I like to dream yes, yes, right between my sound machine

On a cloud of sound I drift in the night

Any place it goes is right

Goes, far, flies near, to the stars away from here

Well you don't know what we can find

Why don't you come with me little girl

on a magic carpet ride

You don't know what we can see

Why don't you tell your dreams to me

Fantasy will set you free

Close your eyes girl

Look inside girl

Let the sound take you away

Illustration Friday: bottled

I have created a few wine labels and it is something I really enjoy. I don't drink, but I find it very appealing to make a piece of art that people get to look at while they are relaxing and having fun! They are feeling good and hopefully looking at your art and taking the time to notice the little details ;) My submission for Illustration Friday's "bottled" theme is a wine label for a father/son wine making venture up here in Topanga. This label was made for a competition they were entering in the hopes of cash prize to possibly fund their endeavours. I had a very short period of time to paint something that gives the impression of rustic and homemade.
