So, my wife, Mai S. Kemble, has been creating awesome apparel illustrations for the German fashion label Fadenrot for years. They have been lovely clients to work with, and have hired me to do a few designs for them in the past as well. Anyhow, this time, they hired both Mai and I to do fabric pattern illustrations with a maritime theme. Mai’s handling the women’s end, and they’re having me do one for mens. Mai posted her roughs for the pattern, and some w.i.p.s on her blog here: http://maiskemble.blogspot.com/2012/12/work-in-progress.html And I got inspired to post my progress on the illustration here:
These are the first roughs for the pattern, which they wanted to have mermaids, pirates, sea time stuffs, ect… Really excited with how this one’s turning out, and am definitely looking forward to hearing their feedback! I hope Mai and I get to do more husband/wife work for clients in the future, as it’s been super fun!
