Cartoon: Champagne moments

I have met few people who aren’t at least impressed by the idea of champagne. The sparkling wine is a powerful symbol of reward, celebration and achievement. Sometimes it even tastes good.

So, I was intrigued when I discovered  that one of my local Sainsburys supermarkets had been deemed sufficiently posh to stock a very high value brand of the drink – namely, Bollinger. This ‘reward’ is apparently quite rare for any store.

As a cartoonist this is a lovely subject to receive as a commission and, especially so when it is a time of hardship for many, even in relatively wealthy Winchester. Scattered hereabouts are some of the ideas the subject provoked.

I wonder which one will get published.
