Summer Bear for EeBoo stationary fair!

I’m back from Toronto.  Toronto Comic and Art Festival went really great!
Met some wonderful Comic Artists in Canada, I will update the drawing diary from the trip soon.
My first gig back in New York was my favorite client Eeboo. I went to their office and tried out their new products, shinny fancy papers and wavy card-stocks.
I love their fancy sparkly papers!  I think this is the only company that I know of making these kids’ craft goods with amazingly beautiful packaging! (Art Director Fumiha Tanaka does great package design!)
So this is what I came up with, Summer bear!  You can meet her at the booth of EeBoo at the Stationary Fair this weekend in NY!

Eeboo Felt Pillow

Getting a call from Fumiha Tanaka is always a good news and a start of fun projects!
Fumiha is the head designer of Eeboo, a paper toy company where they also create a fantastic craft item.
This felt project was great, something I really love to do (crafting and making character) and felt like this is not a job but pure fun which is the best kind of job I can imagine ;-)
Thank you Fumiha and Eeboo!

My job was to create stuffed pillows using those 18 different color package for people to see what they can make with this product.
And the photo of the pillows went on the back like this.
Here are the photos of all the pillows I made for each color!
