Cover illustrations

This project was for Classroom Connect, a source guide for educators on K-12 resources and products on the web. The aim was to rethink the newsletter cover design to make it more compelling. The company was on a very tight budget and had to find innovative ways to fund illustrations for cover designs.

As Art Director, I volunteered to illustrate three covers which helped offset the overall budget for commissioned illustrations. The covers were mixed media illustrations. I worked with Fimo clay and watercolors to create texture and used color to give the covers a playful vibrancy. The first cover featuring the fruit bowl quickly sold out.
