Beach Essentials + Home for the Holidaze Surf Shack Puzzles
I'm unbelievably excited to share my latest collaboration with you! "Beach Essentials" and "Home for the Holidaze" from Surf Shack Puzzle Co.
This was a match made in Heaven! Owner, Mahina is a fellow surfer who started Surf Shack Puzzles last year. I approached her about working together and she was full of wonderful ideas. The first puzzle was an adaptation of an illustration in my portfolio. I painted some additional icons to add more detail to the puzzle. The second was a commissioned design for the holiday market.
Mahina was wonderful to work with and I love that she promotes female artists across the world. Surf Shack Puzzles are made from recycled materials, come in plastic free packaging and are printed with non-toxic inks.
I just love that there are so many avenues for illustration to find its way onto products.
I created the elements with watercolours before scanning them and tweaking the arrangement in Photoshop. I kept to a colour scheme in order to make everything coordinate. (I talk all about this in my online class.)
