Fossil 30th Anniversary Competition

Previous Design Entry 

I recently entered the Fossil 30th Anniversary Competition earlier in February. The competition was for making designs that would go on their watch tin packages, basing it around the subject of 1950's vintage fashion, cars, Route 66, the open road and so on. I decided to go for vintage pin up styles with a modern flair (her dress and watch, which were based on some of their designs in their shop). This is the previous design I was going to use for the competition but ended up tweaking it a little instead, i'll show the final entry in another post! I did this design fairly quick and kept it super simple due to the fact that I decided to enter the day of the deadline... but the result is still good and it was fun! :) Fingers crossed for the competition!

Grad Book Design

Image For The Number One

Image For the 1st Class Stamp

I'm soon to be completing my third and final year at University (eaaak!!) and there is a graduate book that will have artworks from everyone in the class which will be printed and sold, it's so exciting! The theme was numbers and we all had to pick a number at random from a hat.. I picked number one.. no pressure haha. I struggled with this number but was finally happy with the idea of doing an illustrated first class stamp, with an oriental theme which was inspired by Brittney Lee and Audrey Kawasaki's artworks.
So here are the inked sketches for my design, soon to be followed by the complete version!
