Communion Mugs

My objectives were to produce something commercially viable, that was reflective of modern society and yet different from what was already on the market. I wanted to challenge myself so I chose the theme of the ‘Communion Day’. I felt merchandise currently on offer as a gift to commemorate this important day in a child’s life, were dated and unappealing to children. Therefore, I decided to created humorous illustrated characters which could be applied to Communion Cards and Communion merchandise such as a mugs. I intended my drawings to appeal to children in colour and character, but also to the adult purchaser as a way of reminding them of the personalities of the child they are buying the gift for.
