Michael Halbert

Clos des Jacobins Wine Label and Michael Halbert's scraperboard illustration (with the artist's kind permission)How many of you actually pay much attention to the label on your Christmas tipple? This combined graphic shows the wine label for Clos des Jacobins Grand Cru Classé and the scraperboard (US scratchboard) illustration of a French chateau by US artist Michael Halbert. His original work is so detailed you can see bunches of grapes hanging on the vines (CLICK for project details and larger graphics). When reduced for the label, this illustration looks like a steel-plate engraving, which signifies chateau status quality wine. The title link takes you to Michael's website for an impressive online gallery of his art.
