Oh...oh well it's always Christmas to me. Hello darlings.
For lots of people this is old news, but I wanted it up here too so! Earlier this year some might remember me typing about being at the head offices of LUSH, an international cosmetics company that make bath bombs & face creams & dreams come true. I wangled a week's paid internship with their gift design team, which, after a few months of talks within the head honchos, ended in two of my gift designs being published! Both designs were in collectable tins, inspired by seasonal biscuit tins but full of smellies instead. They were released worldwide, so I had the IMMENSE pleasure of having a friend in Sendai send me photos of my drawings in his local, & photos of staff in the NYC & South African LUSH stores posing with them as well!
The one below is less exotic, of a ginger weirdo in the Cornwall LUSH...
Putting tins I drew through the tills at work is kinda surreal though :)
This one is called "Yule Love This Tin" & was my idea to have something indulgent for a 'night before Christmas' sort of scenario, so it's all bath bits. I was working towards ideas of a narrative about the cat & mouse (which, you'll notice, are not stirring ;D) which involved a little peek-a-boo design around the edges of the tin. The gifts are for all the reindeer, including a cheeky tipple & mince pie for Santa above the fire.
I keep my perfume collection in my tins now. If you got one I hope you like it & keep it forever. If you didn't, why not??
Love you xxx
