I am often asked to do wine labels, logos and t-shirt art for personal events like weddings etc. Below are a few samples. There are quite a few wine labels as I make my own wine and like to personalize each type. I first started out with the store bought kits and then graduated to wine made from scratch. These are a lot more complicated as the various types of fruit require strict measuring and control over things like acid, nutrients, tannins and sugar content. So far I have had success with everything from Sumac to Dandelion. Success in that they didn't turn to vinegar, not in that they were all palatable. Sumac was very tart but there was a pleasant taste buried underneath. Not sure if time or sugar would bring that out. The big surprise was watermelon wine. After hearing Tom T. Hall sing about it I was expecting nectar of the Gods. If there are any God's in my septic tank than they'll be drunk. I learned later than I may have jumped the gun on the watermelon wine after a lesson with rhubarb. I made a big batch of the Ashdad Panty Remover and tested it 6 months after bottling. It nearly followed the watermelon down the pipes. To busy to do it and that moment I forgot about it for 6 months or so at which point I tried another taste to refresh my memory. The change was unbelievable. It went from septic sauce to what is now my favourite white fruit wine. In the red category I thought that strawberry wine would be as good as the song, by Dina Carter (not sure if I spelled that right), said it would be. Wrong again. Either I messed up the recipe or these people have no tastebuds. What turned out to be a wine that makes my mouth water just thinking of it was raspberry wine. Seconds after uncorking, its bouquet fills the room, and contrary to the rules this red wine is best when chilled. Third in line is the fabled Dandelion Wine. Not to everyone's taste because of an underlying flavour or aftertaste, but those who like it, like it a lot. A customer of mine was giving me his opinion of it. "Saturday afternoon a buddy and I cracked open your bottle of Dandelion Wine and we each had a glass. It was so damned good that when we came to we finished the rest of the bottle." Can't asked for better than that.

Below are some wine labels I have designed for myself and for customers for special occasions. Most were done before I acquired a computer and so are not as clean as later graphics. Should you find any that you would like to use, just send me a postcard with an unusual stamp on it for my son's collection and I'll email the file to you. Don't forget to put your email address on the postcard. If you would like to keep it private, cover it with a sticker of some kind that I can peel off when I get it.

If you would like one of the labels personalized, send me 2 unique postcards with unusual stamps on them stating what you would like changed and I'll email you the file.

If you would like a label specially designed for you, send me a postcard (unusual stamp) with what you would like on it and I'll email you a price and the file when I've received payment. Most labels run from $20 to $50, depending on the complexity, but remember, you have the file and can print as many as you like.

The same also applies for t-shirt and logo designs except that prices may be more due to the complexity of the design.

STAMP COLLECTORS DON'T HAVE TO DO IT









I occasionally get someone wanting a design that they can have tattooed over an older one that was either poorly done or out of date as well as someone looking for an original design rather than the typical way of choosing from a book of clip art. In the design below I was trying to come up with something different than the usual run of the mill circlet of thorns. I was able to form the image of a cross, dove and Mary and Joseph by using only the thorns. I also made a matching wristlet as well but that might be overkill. The problem is one never knows until the work is done. I haven't got the nerve up to actually get the tattoo on my arm yet but someday. I will probably redesign the small one I already have first. Until then the design is open to be reproduced. If you would like a clear copy of the file just send me 5 or so unique postcards with unique (non-definitive) stamps on it and I'll email you the file. If you would like to purchase the copyrights to the design or request a new design send me a unique card and stamp with your request and email address on it and I'll contact you to discuss price. Info you do not want made public can be put on the card and then covered with a sticker of some kind.
