Ballerina Box

Illustration, Packaging

This summer, Elizabeth reached out to me to create a fully illustrated product. After chatting about the project, I realized this would be one of the biggest undertakings of my humble career – I have never shied away from hand-drawn pieces, even with my modest abilities  – but I’ve never had to think of my craft three dimensionally.

Planning around the layout of an existing Mele & Co. product, I created each panel to seamlessly blend into the other while still maintaining the integrity of the art. My idea was that no matter which way you look at this piece, it has its own independent scene while also being entirely cohesive.
