Illustration Friday: balloon

I missed everybody last week because I had to go out of town and I hope everyone that celebrated Thanksgiving had a very nice one. Have a wonderful extended weekend as well. My submission for Illustration Friday's "balloon" is another die-cut gift tag for a happy birthday greeting.

Illustration Friday: pretend

Let's pretend we are small enough to walk into this box and help ourselves to some chocolate, fun clothes and surf and sun. Wouldn't that be swell? My submission to Illustration Friday's "pretend" theme is a store-shaped candy box for Fred Segal Fun Style. They are located in Santa Monica and specialise in casual beachy fashion and accessories.

Illustration Friday: wise

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.
Charles W. Eliot, The Happy Life, 1896 US educator (1834 - 1926)

My submission for Illustration Friday's "wise" theme are some diecut gift tags that feature teachers in the doorway of an old-fashioned school house.
