Hey everyone so I've been working on a Fairytale called the Fisherman Son which is a Brazilian based tale. The story is filled of short adventures the son goes through once he was traded by his dad to the river spirit. I focused on the ending where the boy escapes and end up at a kingdom and falls in love. Everyone loves a good love story.
The most important part of this assignment for me was the gathering of reference I made huge collages of all things brazil. I wanted to capture colors, culture and vibrance of Brazil.

The style I went for was folkart combine with paper cut. These pieces were very fun to work on and the color palette was a challenge but I loved it.

Greeting Cards are a huge joy of mines so I want to create a greeting card for every occasion possible. Since mother day is coming up I design 2 card designs.
Original of my card was done in gouache on vellum Bristol paper. Final of one card design printed on white card stock. Its embellished with little gems which add that cute pop to them and of course I can't forget the glitter pen.
