Ugly Sweater Party Invite
Club Auto, an organization for automotive enthusiasts, wanted a fun invitation to send out to their members for their annual ‘ugly sweater’ holiday party, so I decided to create an ugly sweater invite for them. The idea was inspired by the traditional knitted sweaters that have recently been the center of so many such parties paired with the idea of the classic, family station wagon with a tree tied to the roof.
My favorite aspect of this piece is not the art itself, but the way it was created. For this invite, I learned a new technique on how to “stitch” in Illustrator, which means that this realistic-looking wool image is a vector file, instead of raster, so it can be scaled to fit any format. Not only was this a fun piece to make, but it was also a great learning experience for me. The client was thrilled with the final product, as well.
