It’s the most Wonderful time of the year
A few months ago, the London-based wine company Berry Bros. & Rudd asked me to illustrate a new issue for this year’s Christmas catalog (2019). It contains all the fine wines you can wish for, and of course, illustrations by yours truly. 😊
Illustrating for a catalog was something totally new for me but it turned out to be a fun experience. I painted tons of wine bottles, wine glasses, cocktails and other beverages. But the scene wouldn’t be complete without the ever cheerful Father Christmas and his little helpers & animal friends. The artwork is a nostalgic wink to the illustrations of the old days with a little quirky twist to them. (Or that’s what I aimed for).
The elements of this artwork have also been used for the front store’s window display. And at the time I’m posting this, the shop is using the artwork on their website as an animated gif (see above).
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas.
Let it snow…
Below you can view some pages of the catalog.
I was so pleased to see how elegant and chic it all looked.
The illustrations were printed on beautiful sturdy (and recycled) paper. And the cover is stylefully embellished with golden lettering.
This job came through my agent Jennifer Nelson Artists, and I’ve really enjoyed working with the lovely people of BB&R.

It was a really fun project to work on (as you might be able to tell). I wrote a blog post with more images on my website. Hop over to my profile and click the ’Links’. But be aware: It’s only for those of you who are curious enough! Haha. ☺️😉 I’d love to know what you think.
