The Brief: To create a cute animal character to be used on a greeting card for the stationary market.

Role: Graphic designer and illustrator responsible for concept, design, and implementation of all lettering and illustration.

Tools Used: Pencil & pen, paper, scanner, Adobe Creative Suite.


This image was created to go on a Valentine’s Day card for Paper Heart Dispatch, an online stationary shop. The animal was supposed to be rendered “cute” and whimsical, with hand-drawn lettering with a little bit of a pun with “owl” standing in for “I’ll”. I drew and inked the image on paper, then scanned it into the computer to vectorize it and add digital color, and then composed it on the greeting card.
