A Tale of Two Winos

It's been the best of times, and the worst of times for Amy Winehouse this year. Last spring, I did an illo for Brick of the boozy songstress to accompany a glowing review of her (admittedly pretty solid) new record, Back To Black. She's all glamorous, a little edgy with the tattoos, but definitely rocking the old-timey starlet routine. Success was unkind to ol' Wino, however, and by late fall she'd cancelled her tour, been photographed in dozens of unflattering situations, and now she's the punchline to a joke in Savage Love.
