Kid Hero Collection

Kid Hero Collection - student project

I was inspired to do a back to school set of supplies and stationery for kids with a vintage comic book superhero theme. 

I started out drawing the icons by hand with marker so I could have a clean graphic look. Next I scanned them into Photoshop and separated the linearts so I could play with placement.

Personally, I really like the illustrated mockups Redbubble has and opted to draw my mockups to keep with the whole comic art vibe. 

After that I put together a few patterns and designs using the icons!

I also tried the pattern on a more realistic mockup from another project.

I'm going to keep making these and building my portfolio! In the meantime I'm putting the patterns up on Redbubble in a collection.
