Featured Blog: The Illustrated Wine (Take 2!)

Hello, readers!  I am on vacation in sunny Mexico right now, so I wanted to take the opportunity to feature another cartoon from one of my favorite off-beat wine blogs, The Illustrated Wine.  The Illustrated Wine is a graphic wine blog by a WSET diploma candidate (Zelda), which features all of her own comics, illustrations, and graphics related to all things wine.  I recommend visiting her site, and please let her know that The Academic Wino sent you!

Since I find Zelda’s cartoons so entertaining, I thought another guest post from her would be perfect.  She was kind enough to send me some of her most recent work to share with all the readers of The Academic Wino.  Enjoy, and while you’re at it, head on over to The Illustrated Wine to read more comics and to say hello to Zelda for me!

Wine doesn’t have to be pretentious.  In fact you have to through some humor in there so one doesn’t become overwhelmed or burned out with the mountains of scientific articles that are out there on the subject.  It is important to have a little fun while you’re learning about something that can be complicated at times, otherwise you’ll just end up getting very frustrated and burning out too quickly.

When you find yourself stressed out for one reason or another, maybe hop on over to Zelda’s blog and browse through some of her entertaining comics.  Being a WSET diploma candidate, she has a strong background in wine to make her comics and cartoons entertaining on more than just a superficial level.

I hope you all enjoy visiting The Illustrated Wine, and when you go there, please say “hi” to her and let her know that The Academic Wino sent you!  You may also follow The Illustrated Wine on Twitter:  @zeldasydney
