Landscape Mug Stickers - Summer 2017
My objective for this series was to recreate the memorable landscapes from my time at Jackson Lake. I decided to make these mini mugs and turn them into stickers while utilizing my graphic design skills. These mugs are a combination of watercolor, ink, and digital work; the paintings were scanned into Adobe Illustrator.
