I was asked to design some cards for a volunteer event for a school in town and was given the messages, the school logo and cart blanche for everything else. I had a lot of fun working on these with the wife. Check it out!
The base illustrations on these are vintage etchings from some really old books that I think are just beautiful. All of the accents are my special additions.
I was completely stuck on what I wanted to do for this one and kept trying stuff that wasn't working out. Then my wife saved the day and had the idea for these hand-drawn sunglasses on the animals. I am really happy with the result. This is my favorite piece from the project.
Since the animals that you see above were not best suited for the audience of the cards I was asked to redesign it to express something with more "love and caring". So I made this. It isn't a wolf wearing sunglasses, but I think that it is pretty cute.
