Christmas Travel

lpg-x-mas-pencil005-2.jpg I recently approached a Christmas Card Company not realizing that they only printed BOXED cards. They informed me that they needed some designs specifically for the airline industry. I presented about 12 ideas, most of which joked about the difficulty of holiday travel. From that batch, they chose only one idea but I was happy just to get my foot in a NEW door. They then asked for it to be less cartoony. This is my second sketch updating the idea. I changed it from a line drawing to a sketch that was a little more illustrative , (albeit still not in color). After this try, they ended up passing on it all together as they said it was still way to cartoony. Didn’t even give me third try. Guess “I’m nothing but a misfit!” Bummer.
