Trend 1: Wonder Waters – primarily with illustrations of mermaids
Trend 2: Primitive Outlines – for the typography.
The idea is to have a pencil/crayon-like lettering. The illustrations will have handrawn textures to match the typography.
This is still a Work In Progress. I’ve reused an old mermaid illustration I did for a previous Trend Workshop with the colours modified to match the Wonder Waters trend of soft pastel shades. With the typography style, I wanted a child-like crayon/pencil drawn style lettering. Showing a mockup of how the illustration and lettering would work together. Second image shows how I got to the hand-drawn style lettering from the original cleaner lettering style.
