Fourth of July Inspired Fashion & Retail Illustrations

Since it’s fourth of July weekend, I thought I’d share one of my more patriotic National Advertising Campaigns created for The Container Store “Love Your Luggage, Go Organized!” This gallery features my fashion illustrations paired with photographed products. The prevailing theme of red white and blue in this this series of my illustrated travels features fashion, lifestyle and destination illustrations. Here’s but  just a few of the advertising layouts that were published in web, direct mail, in-store standees, pop displays, billboards as well as full page editorial ads in all major newspapers nation-wide.

A fresh illustration style for spring

SpringStyleGirl180With spring emerging so does my desire to explore in the studio…finding  joy and freedom using India inks with loose brush strokes has invited a slightly new and very fresh style to my illustration.

A Spring Time Goddess Emerges…

Listen closely …. to the warmth whispering on the winds of a bleak winter month.  Lake ice turns deepest Prussian Blue, reflecting  no light in the last few days before becoming mercurial water. What has emerged from my paper and paints, but a woodland spring  goddess offering the hopefulness of Spring.
This piece was inspired by my daughter Matisse Merriam, who’s inner beauty and other knowledge is indeed my ‘crown of flowers’.
