Strawberry Shortcake card design

I did this graphic approach to the Strawberry Shortcake character for a Licensing show greeting card. The original design was much more cartoony, but I went with more of a sophisticated look for a change. I really don't do a lot of graphic illustrations, but this worked. A bunch of other talented artists did their take on other characters like Madballs and Sushi Pack for greeting cards as well. I will add links to their art whenever they upload them to the web.

This month (actually last month) I've been reading the bio on Walt Disney. AMAZING book. I strongly recommend this read. I also stumbled upon this rare gem called "The adventures of Isabel". I usually check out books to read to my kids from the library and I lucked up on this find. I really enjoy kids storybooks. This one had a really cool old school limited color palette. The story was pretty strange too. The little Isabel nibbled on a one eyed giant who was going to grind her bones into bread. Afterwards she beheaded him with a pair of scissors (no lie)

Interesting and original take on Miss Shortcake Sacks. I dig it even if it isn't as flowing and stylish as your usual work.

Why not post the original version too?
