Giampa – It’s cocktail time!

Giampa1 sm

Well, work continues with the illustrations for The AA book.

At the moment I’m up to my eyes in piles of cress and trout.

This cocktail isn’t one of The AA illustrations, I hasten to add!

A work colleague ret=urned from holidaying in Sorrento, Italy and had particularly enjoyed the signature cocktail at the hotel and wanted to send the owners a little thank you for their attentiveness.

 

So I we met up and she showed me her scribbled ingredients and I made a rough sketch underneath of her description.

The only other information I had was a snippet of a photograph, taken at the hotel.

(I was a bit frustrated that I fudged my scanning a bit; I think I got the settings a bit off and it leeched out a lot of the lighter colouring)

I wonder if the hoteliers will send a photo of the illustration in situ. I do hope so.
