Alice In Wonderland Shirt Design

Another shirt to add to the collection! This one will be going up on Redbubble alongside my 99 Red Balloons shirt! This was vectored in Adobe Illustrator and sketched and mocked-up in Adobe Photoshop (model photo by Threadless). I've always been in love with Alice (see: buttons) and now that I've gotten into making shirts, it's only fitting I honor my Lolita idol once more.

PS- PLEASE go vote on my 99 Red Balloons shirt on Designbyhumans. Link is here:

New Carter's Portfolio

Yes, it's that time again! I did another assessment test for Carter's (who I would LOVE to work for). These were all vectored in Adobe Illustrator (with the exception of the last floral, which I hand drew and colored in Photoshop). The idea here was to create a bunch of characters, clothing prints, and florals to be used in children's clothing. This is what I've been up to for the past 2 weeks. Hope you enjoy it.

This is some of my process work. Definitely not all of it. I think I filled about 20 pages in my small sketch book and these are about 15 of the pages compiled into one image.

99 Red Balloons Shirt Design

Everything vectored in Illustrator. Mock-up done in Photoshop. The model photo belongs to Threadless and is shown on "Black". I had a lot of fun with this shirt because I've never really touched the artist's brushes in Illustrator. Because I was playing with the brushes, this shirt took me a lot longer than I expected. This shirt was inspired by the song 99 Red Balloons by Nena.

"Ninety-nine dreams I have had
Every one a red balloon
Now it's all over and I'm standin' pretty
In this dust that was a city

If I could find a souvenir
Just to prove the world was here
And here is a red balloon
I think of you and let it go"
