Just less than a month ago, I posted the beginning of my "continuing education" of learning to sketch and illustrate for my upcoming collection. I scoured the web for YouTube videos and picked up every book possible on illustration for fashion. And lookey lookey.. the growth and now the launch of illustrated greeting cards byAndreaFenise. It was such a natural and an amazing experience looking back in retrospect how far I have come and grown professionally.
My intentions with illustrating was solely practice. We all know that practice makes perfect while at least a great attempt at it. While sketching this particularly piece, the lesson plan was to play with poses and a little personality. I fell in love with the colors and style of the illustration.
With the support of my friends, Kim & Kamesha, I decided to create a collection of illustrated greeting cards to gift to all of my amazing clients and friends. I think its important and definitely a kind gesture to send Thank You cards. It is sort of nostalgic and a personal touch to write a handwritten letter and deliver it to postal service.
Ava Loren Design and I collaborated on this stationery project by brainstorming packaging and presentation ideas. And as always, it was a great and easy partnership.
So I am inviting you to shop away...order the first design form the collection to send out for Thank You's , Happy Birthdays, or Just Because!! Your friends and family will be so surprised and of course I would be honored.
P.S. If you are so kind to donate to my GoFundMe campaign, I send these lovely illustrated cards as a token of my gratitude.
