This pair of restored frames make a perfect gift for any bird lover during the holidays. They are elegantly hung side by side. They have the original hand cut glass that the frame was bought in.

New Mele & Co. catalog front and back

2011 Catalog-
I was going for a nostalgic, whimsical, fashionable, raw feel for this catalogs layout. I wanted to push the fashion forward with our boxes and make sure I include the purpose of our boxes by not only illustrating the women but the jewelry as well. I drew all the women, jewelry, and background images.

uoyssimi digital print

This is a hand drawn colleagued design. I used tracing paper and I ripped a larger drawing i had into pieces to make the black shapes. I'm going to extend this drawing horizontally, add more circular drawings and possibly a building in the background. I love experimenting with layers and textures.
