When i first started to work as a full time artist, i was lucky enough to begin designing screenprint graphics for some super talented indie clothing designers for kids. One of these AMAZING clients is the uber-talented Claudia from CityKid Style. Do you see those kids in that photo up there? Do they look great or what? Claudia has a great eye for styling. She also has a pretty gorgeous muse in her skater-chic young daughter. Claudia initially contacted me to do a sketch of her daughter! That was our first interaction. We worked so well together, that we just kept doing it. Since then, i’ve designed her new brand logo, hang tags, some web graphics.
And i even got to paint a custom skateboard deck for her to use as signage when she does shows.
And naturally, we’ve begun to work together on a steady stream of apparel screenprint graphics for her line. The newest, “Be Yourself”, is shown in these adorable photos. The way it works is; Claudia has a creative vision, shoots me an email, and some creative direction, then i get to sketching, and we usually have a clean, screen-ready graphic done in under a week.
Because we love our partnership so much, we decided to work on a little treat together. I’ve pulled together a printable coloring page featuring the “Be Yourself” graphic. And Claudia will be sharing the download link with any customer who buys one of the garments featuring the art. It’s just a little thank you. But we hope you enjoy! So check out more of these great looks at CityKid Style, and then get busy coloring!!
