It's (nearly) the end of Feb, which means it's time for the last of our love-themed weekly challenges!
This week's challenge very close to my heart - or should I say my sweet-art!
As befits my name (Dulcie = sweet one) I'm a real sweet tooth and have been a little bit obsessed with sweets all my life. I love nothing more than discovering obscure confectionery whilst on holiday, or going into a big imported sweet shop and gawping at all the absurd names and colourful packaging. I mean who doesn't love a packet of WILLY GUM, a bar of PLOPP or a box of WHOPPERS?!
Having worked in brand marketing for 14 years, I also putting my own twist on existing brands and products - and inventing completely absurd new ones! So much so that I always include a little re-branding activity at my Social Sketchups - e.g. last month's re-brand Rainbow Drops challenge!
But enough of the back story!
Your challenge this week is to invent and design the packaging for an art-inspired box of sweets, ready to launch in time for Valentine's Day 2019.
I've designed mine on pizza boxes, but you could just draw in your sketchbook - or even better: buy a box of chocolates and turn it inside out, decorate the outside and then fill it back up and give it to your sweet-art!
Before you do anything though, watch this Ab Fab clip to get you in the mood :)
Happy sketching sweeties!!
