'Chateau Comrade for the Champagne Socialist' is a tongue-in-cheek limited edition wine label collection, created for the 2017 Public Interest Advocacy Centre Social Justice Dinner Auction. The event, hosted by the excellent Tony Jones & Sarah Ferguson raises vital funds for projects that protect the basic rights of the community’s most vulnerable people.
Each label features the portrait of a different famous 'socialist' leader painted in black ink, creating a case of six 'Comrades' including Chairman Mao, Gough Whitlam, Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Ho Chi Minh & Joseph Stalin.
This project was created in collaboration with Olivia Pirie Griffiths of PIAC and James Kilmartin of Underwood Wines and I was thrilled to be able to contribute my creativity to an outstanding organisation, and hopefully instigate some laughter in the process.
The Grandma Card Series celebrates the benefits & joys of ageing gracefully (or not) with your best friends.
The cards were created solely as unique gifts for friends, until Lena Dunham (writer of HBO Girls & author of “Not That Kind Of Girl) shone a light on my cards when she reposted the illustration featuring her book, to her 2.5 million Instagram followers, out of the blue!
They’ve been making their way to girls around the world ever since.
