While illustrating for the party paper market I tried combining the popular subjects in this market (i.e. birds and florals) and the folk art trend. It was important for me to make a commercial piece while keeping my own style visible. I wanted to make fun and pretty imagery that will be pleasant and attractive to use at a party. I made sure the items I designed here will work well together and that the icons I created can be used in more products if I'll want to broaden the collection with more coordinating party items.
I believe this illustration can be used not only in the party paper market but also in other markets (Bolt Fabric, Home Décor, Gift, Paper, Baby Apparel and even Scrapbooking)- what do you think? I'll be happy to hear from you!
