Recent (Bath & Body) Works

June 25th, 2012


As I briefly mentioned on twitter last week, I’ve done some illustration work for Bath & Body Works and the first of the products have recently come out! These were put to bed months and months ago, so it’s great to see them all REAL on actual packaging and I’m so pleased with how they turned out. I wish we had a store in the UK so I could go and look at them on the shelves, but a few people have snapped them for me on Instagram which was the next best thing. Not to gush, but it is really thrilling to have something of mine out there on such a big scale (Bath & Body Works have more than 1,600 stores!) that people are buying (I hope!).

I love the metallic ink they went with for the bag.
