Posted here is the sketch and final illustration art I created for the project... a scene depicting the article's author up on her "soapbox" at a wine bar touting the virtues of all-natural wines. (And you can see from the range of expressions of the people around her, she is garnering some interest, but not a lot... meaning it's pretty safe to conclude that conventionally produced wines are not going to be changing their recipes or production procedures anytime soon because of the wonderful but small niche being forged by natural wines.)
