Edible Santa Barbara Wine Label Artwork Contest
—Most Eye Catching—
The original hawk artwork, titled “Sky Father” (ink on hide), was created by tattoo artist David Hale. The artwork was digitally adapted and the label designed by Noah Rowles in conjunction with design firm Makers & Allies. The judges praised the intricacy of this stunning, geometric illustration. One judge pointed out that the notches at the sides are purposeful, and there is no question that this would command attention on a retail wine shelf. The wine is a tribute to the lords of the sky at the Dovecote estate—their numerous resident families of beautiful red-tailed hawks.
Many thanks to our judges: Harriet Eckstein, Jennifer LeMay and Michael Nicola.
