So I letter-pressed my cuckoo clock design using photopolymer and this is the result! It was printed on quality paper then mounted on museum board and hand cut out with an Xacto. Needless to say my fingers hurt after cutting this bad boy out! Now all there's left to do is attach the letterpress pinecones with chain material! Final picture will be posted soon!
The decals were a pain in the butt to apply, and I'm not particularly happy with them, so here is the candle packaging which I am happy with. I wanted it to be a simple, clean design with a boutique aesthetic.

Our last assignment in letterpress class is to create a promotional package of business cards and coasters. I'm using the personal logos I created in another class for them. I'm going to print the business cards black and white, but I'm probably going to play with the colors for the coasters. Promo packages mean it's coming down to the end of art school :( :( :(

My friend and classmate, Jongmee Kim, is doing an out of class collaboration project with me and a couple other people (Jackie Somerville and Veronica Bayagich). It's a milk packaging project called MOO. The girls and I each designed a pattern to use on our unique flavors of milk, which Jongmee will be designing the packaging for. I chose to do strawberry and this is the result! I really like to draw cute hedgehogs, though they're not usually affiliated with strawberries. haha :)

This poster is a compilation of my painting, Jellyfish drawing and pattern I did in photoshop for my advanced illustration and design class. I'm glad we had this assignment because it's a better fit in my portfolio than just the painting, I feel.

Here's a sneak peak at some of my illustrations I did for my Ephemera Zine. In my letterpress class, Mark Murphy http://www.murphydesign.com/ came to visit and do a workshop. He gave my class a zine assignment and its really awesome, I can't wait to pull an all-nighter tomorrow night in order to assemble all my zines! They're going to incorporate ribbon, little antique keys I found at a scrapbook store and crystal gem charms!
Now that the painting is done, I'm ordering special decals for candles so I can put them on a flameless battery powered candle for the student show :) I'm also working on a couple packaging designs for the finished candle. I'll post those when they're done!
