Drawing house as a castle

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

slotpaasbergsmallI made this drawing for a “personailised” bottle of wine  I gave at a friends wedding.
Extende the house on the drawing to look like a castle.

Many French wines are called chateau X or Y  So I made a french translation of the streetname and made a beutiful label with a print and glued it to a bottle of wine.

Was quite a lot of work for a personalised label on a bottle, but I had the time to make it and any less effort for my friends wedding would feel cheap..

Kept the original for now..
