A collection of greeting cards done for Joan Philo, a casting director in Chicago, IL. The cards range from thank you cards for movie workers to traditional themed cards. I did this project traditionally in watercolor.
The Darling Series a collection of movie themed greeting cards
This project is a continuing labor with Joan Philo, a casting director based in Chicago, IL. The idea is much akin to a story weaving the adventures and life of the "Darling" who works in movies, meets her beau at some point, and etc. The series starts with the typical Christmas and Valentine's Day cards and also includes thank you cards to members of a movie set - Cameras, Props, Wardrobe, etc. It was a challenge to distill complex ideas into a 5"x7" card that could both grab the attention of the viewer and also give the characters justice. For this project I designed both the main "Darling" character, as well as any secondary characters; I laid out the main design and type for the designer, who then did his own magic.
