I'd like you to meet a few friends of mine...
Last spring I was hired to design this lively group of Kleenex boxes for the Kimberly-Clark Corporation. You might remember that I did a box for them last year. This group is being sold exclusively at Target! (Oh, like I need another reason to go to Target! I have to go stalk my Kleenex boxes now! lol!)
With their style direction, I drew and cut and stitched and appliqued these pieces in felt. They photographed my finished artwork and had it reproduced on the cartons. It was a lot of work on a short short deadline, but I loved doing it! This is the kind of project I never turn down. In fact, I'd love to illustrate a kids book someday with felt applique. It's been on my *someday* to do list!
I love the new wedge shaped packaging, don't you? So fun to arrange. And how do they get all that Kleenex in there?
I don't know the official in-store date on these. (This set came straight from the company) But if I know Target, they'll have their Christmas stuff out in full force November 1st! :) Please alert me of any sightings!
