Make Art That Sells (MATS) Week 5 - Gift

This past week was all about the gift market in my Make Art That Sells (MATS) class. Our assignment was to create a hyper-lush zipper case.  The image should also be a reflection.

We were prompted this week to examine our personal collections.  I started off sketching my collections of stuffed penguins and polar bears (mostly gifts from friends).

I tried making a design with these icons for a zipper case, but it didn't seem lush enough to me.  I deccided to go along with my Hawaiian collection.  I have a bedspread, bean bag, shopping bag, and more that are Hawaiian themed.  I knew I could get hyper lush with this theme.

This week I pushed myself also trying a few new things.  I decided to try using a limited color palette with lots of pink (a color I don't use very much).  I also added gradients in my work and decided to play around with textures as well.  It definitely was a struggle at times, but I think the final product is worth it.  I am very happy with it and grew very much this week by pushing myself.
