stormhoek bottles

[A print idea for #evilplans. Click on image to enlarge etc.]

EUREKA! I had my EVIL PLANS road trip idea, but it was lacking the social object it needed to really work.

Sure, driving around Texas with a video camera and an idea about "Dream Big" was all very well, but it needed something to work as a totem for the Stormhoek wine.

IDEA: Hand-painted wine bottles.

I've drawn on Stormhoek wine bottles before, using painting sticks. They looked kinda cool. While I travel around Texas, I'll be making them to hand out to people who went to all the trouble to support this enterprise. See image above to get a rough idea what it might look like...

This is exciting. The road trip idea is suddenly A LOT More interesting, all of a sudden. Rock on.

[Update: Just added this blog post to EVIL PLANS.]

I have a sculpture that displays wine bottle hanging on my wall. How much for a MacLeod original? ;->

Dan, Exactly! Always steal from the best, I say ;-)

I was messing around with painted Stormhoek bottles about 3 years ago, but at the time we didn't have the resources to pursue it further, which I was bummed about...

LA, I'll let the market decide how much the bottles go for... I could easily see them going for a couple of hundred, eventually. But these things are hard to predict.
