Walk Detroit

Having fun with my new press! 

Trying to figure out how to fold the dang skirt!  Finally got it after the table was covered in different types of folded paper.

Here it is! My poster design for the Detroit Shoppe at Somerset mall.  I had a lot of fun with this one because I tried some different things and it gave me an excuse to buy a press :).  I feel like I really stuck true to myself with this one and it turned out just as I wanted.  Of course, as always, feedback is appreciated.  Walk Detroit!

Cairo anyone?

Pattern.  Was inspired by the pyramids and the sunny desert!  My personal favorite so far :)

Packaging ideas and designs.  Remember it will be a journal type of thing! I'm thinking about doing a postcard too? We'll see.

Lip gloss ideas.  Ordering the empty containers this week so they will be legit!

Cairo Illustration.  
I named this one "Daydreams in Cairo" but I don't know if I like it now.  I'll think of some more and see how it goes.  Keeping it for now though!  I've done three so far but haven't showed one because it is undergoing some tweaking at the moment and have started my fourth one.  I've decided I am only doing four illustrations that have packaging ideas and designs and what not so I can finally move to getting these looking like the belong on the shelf!

Abroad Affairs!


Packaging Ideas and Designs

Lip Gloss Idea

"Strolling London"

I have been working on this series of lip gloss products that I am creating the illustrations and packaging for.  The idea is traveling around the world, so each color represents a different city.  This illustration is of London so the lipgloss will be called "Strolling London."  The entire lipgloss product is called "Abroad Affairs." My thinking is that the packaging of the lipgloss could be a journal of the travels specific to that city.  I want to make a journal too that comes with the lipgloss in the package as sort of an extra to the purchase.  So, here is the illustration and ideas for packaging! I haven't made them yet, but I will. :)
