During our creation of TWELVElittle, we were in need of an amazing illustrator to create our 12 Little Wonders. We had to use them for our advertisements, prints and leather dangles. We were extremely lucky to have Catherine Min, who is an independent illustrator and animation instructor. We want to share her ideas, thought process, and how the zodiac animals evolved to become our 12 Little Wonders Dangles.
Initial idea sketches:
And with these illustrations, we were able to create our 12 Little Wonders Dangles and the Race illustration.
We are in love with these animals!!! Customers have been asking us where the rest of the animals are and if we will be making them. Currently we only have the tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake and the horse. We will be adding more animals for the next season in order of the zodiac, so the next animal will be the sheep.
We want to say a big THANK YOU to Catherine for these awesome critters. If you want to see more of her original work, you can see them here: http://yoogysketch.tumblr.com/ and http://thecatpark.blogspot.com/
