As Nancy reported in her post just below this, we met yesterday to discuss, brainstorm, sketch, plan, think and joke around with the idea of creating a wine label for a new variety of wine coming from Mercer Wineries in Prosser, WA.
The concept was created from a discussion owner, Rob Mercer, and his field technician, John Derrick, had regarding Rob's Marine deployment to Iraq in 2008, and a close friend of John's who was killed when Flight 93 crashed into that Pennsylvania corn field.
They carved out a few more acres of land, named it, "Block 93," then they started talking about a wine label for the new wine once it is produced. "Something with both an eagle and a plow to symbolize our country and our pride we have in it, agriculture, hope, promise . . . "
Our little group of sketcher decided to take on the challenge so here in this post, as well as Nancy's, and others that may appear here, you will find a representation of our early beginnings.
