These are some simple, graphic cards that I'm putting together for a greeting cards portfolio. As I keep working on these, they are probably going to be more refined and complicated. Just trying to get my feet doing some more simple ideas.
Per suggestion from a fan of my work, I decided to recreate some of my favorite childhood stories in my own cutesy way. The original suggestion was specifically Disney, but I am a HUGE fan of Grimm's fairy tales and Aesop's fables, etc. so I decided to take a more traditional story approach.
Since I was doing a portfolio for Carter's, I wanted to include something of my own to throw in there, that isn't really in their style, but more of my own. I figured it would be a nice patterning addition.
So the stories that are represented here are Peter Pan, Little Red Riding Hood, and Cinderella.
Make sure you check my twitter account at: http://www.twitter.com/wastedwings to see the Red Riding Hood pattern in effect.
These were done in Adobe InDesign and Illustrator CS4.
