concepts


HAPPPYY FRIIIDDDAAAYY! Today I thought I'd share these little critters with you. I had an email from a greeting card company in the USA yesterday wanting a set of four card concepts - super pronto! So I whipped these up pretty quick. They're still pretty rough and lacking detail but I think they came out OK... I hope they get published :) Talk about working under pressure hehe!
I hope you all have fab weekends and get some time to relax and have a bit of fun.

Gorgeous illustrations - my favourite (which is very hard to choose) is the cat followed closely by the rabbit. Just love them!

What can I say that hasn't already been said.... sublime colour palette (how do you arrive at your marvelous colours...???!) and gorgeous graphics... and all that with a tight deadline, impressive indeed :)
Darn, I missed your giveaway, I always tune in just a day or so too late... I'll keep my eyes peeled for the next one!

bee said...

Wow, I am very flattered you all like these - thank you so much! Your comments have made my day :) Yippee!
Matt - picking colours is always just a trial and error process... I usually just stuff around til I find what I think looks good hehe! Yes, it's a bit in-efficient I know :)

Hey Bee! How are you? Thanks for the lovely comments on my blog, its always a pleasure! And I love your crazy in your face colours! Congrats on the card commission, I hope they get published too. Fingers crossed for you, I dont see why they wouldnt! They are awesome. My favourite would be.... probably the rabbit. I like rabbits. They have cool ears. I hope you are well and that life is treating you good! Oh and in case you are interested... the film I worked on is showing at MIFF in July, it might be worth a look!(http://www.melbournefilmfestival.com.au/firstbite/animation - The Illusionist)

Take care!

I love the new header (it's new, right??) Im so flattered that you stop by and read my thoughts, thanks! I'm also glad you and I share the same outlook...many people dont "get it", but- I'm glad someone out there does. :) You should move to Canada! I have a friend in aussie land (or as I'd like to call it, Future Land) who is coming to move here to live.... come with! :D

Ah, Bee, you're so sweet. My daughter just gasped when she saw these four amazing illos..you have a BIG fan over here!! : ) Make that THREE fans! I'm happy to have brought back a good memory with the TV. Wow! 6 kids!!! : ) Remember those potato chip bags..there were two bags within one large bag..did you have those growing up? Oh my, I have such good memories devouring chips. : )

bee said...

Oh my goodness yes! I remember those chip bags! We would share ONE of those twin-bags between us all... oh and it was six including mum and dad - just four kids :)

Wow I'm so glad your daughter loves these, it's great because my brief was to create something that kids and adults could send - hurrah! Thanks Shirley, you've made my day!
