Illustration Friday - Visitors


It's Illustration Friday mad this week! I've put 2 in today, as I managed to get the Captain drawing in before Penelope changed the topic.
I did this week's Illo Friday image for The Guardian weekend magazine, for a wine column I sometimes illustrate.
The article was all about the utterly minging wine that is generally sold in corner shops and in garage shops here in the UK - so this couple, who were going to visit a friend, thought they would buy some from a pub (you'd think it would be a good place to get wine) - but no - it was even worse...and they got chased out the pub by the skinhead with the pool cue.
And all because they had missed the off-licence before it shut on a Sunday.

I love my wine, and may I offer you all a tip - try wine from the Margaret River area in Western Australia - especially the unoaked Chardonnay and the Semillon Sauvignon Blancs. Wineries of note are Leewuin, Madfish, Wise and Palandri. Bloody brilliant.

Also, last but not least, THANKYOU to all of you for the lovely comments on my blog referring to IF's choosing me as pick of the week - I am thrilled and chuffed to bits! But I won't let it go to my head, I promise.
