Earlier this year, I was commissioned to create a series of illustrations to be used as character illustrations for advertising on their website Justimagine.email . The client gave me three different themes or holidays he wanted me to create artwork for. One was Valentine's Day (or couples), one was Mother's Day, and one was family. I started creating the artwork for a white family, and the client expressed an interest in me expanding my subject matter to different ethnicities first, so I switched over to doing a black family instead. All of these had to be similar to a style of character already being used on the site, but I also wanted these characters to be very fun and engaging, while trying to solve them in a different way then your first inclination. I feel like the couple scene accomplished that the best by approaching them in an unusual but fun and cute way.
