UK Greetings Dog Illustration.

A - Z Dog Breeds

I really like how this poster displays a range of dogs, that look different but still remain within a similar style. I like how they are drawn in a naive style yet still portray the characteristics of each bread in a fun and quirky way that helps to give them personality.

I feel that these designs are very effective especially how just two colours have still been able to get across the form of the dog. I like the screen printed style and this would be an interesting technique that I could incorporate into my own work.

I noticed these illustrations because they have such a unique style. I think this is effective because it draws peoples eyes. This effect would help my audience notice my cards and make them stand out amongst the rest in the crowded market. I also like the textured appearance of the colour, something like this could be developed to represent the dogs fur.

The detail of these illustrations is impressive but I don't think it is a style I would adopt for my own work. Although one aspect that has come to my attention is the clothes that the dogs are wearing. This is a very big trend within some dog owners, especially within small dogs. This is a concept I could definitely adopt to my own cards.

This is another hand drawn style of illustration. Although I think it works I don't think it as successful as the first example because the style is less refined. This has made me realise how important it is to have a consistent style if I want my cards to work as a set.

I am a big fan of this linear style and I like how the colour has been injected in a consistent way across the drawings. This example also features dogs in outfits and props which shows again the popular trend. This is something I am definitely going to look into further.

This example also uses the linear style, but I feel the black and white colour scheme makes it look to severe and doesn't put across the fun loving feel I will be going for.
