Miss graduate also asked for a Thank You card for her Dad with the request that his be humorous.
For this I wanted to incorporate personalized elements: He is an engineer, she will be studying engineering, she is an artist.
I worked from a sketch for this card again but I did all the layout and design in CorelDraw. I downloaded some graphics from Google Images and used the program to remove color and tone down contrast. The idea was to end up with a light sketch of tools with the girl on top.
The image was printed on white cardstock with an inkjet printer. I then used a black watercolor marker to draw in the girl and her cap with bolder lines. I then used Copic markers in warm greys to color them in. Colored Copics were used to trace out the background images.
I trimmed and mounted this image onto a warm grey card base. Inside, a second printed panel is mounted.
I used a playful mix of fonts to contrast against the structure.
