The Holidays have never been so sweet.

1. The holidays have never been so sweet.
2. The holidays have never been this sweet.
3. The holidays can't get any sweeter.

oh my. copy is so much harder than i thought. i am open to suggestions and would appreciate feedback very much. :)

Idea #3: combining famous works of art with fabulous cakes.
This one features Degas.

I had to scrap this idea because, while i liked appealing to a different audience/age group, I had to pull too many images from the web to make the concept work. and plus, its kinda hard to put your name on something that isn't completely your own.
so I went back to my sketchbook and whipped this up during class:

The set up and layout is all very tentative. The drawing will be cleaner and more colorful than this.
I am pretending that these ads will be in "family" magazines around the holiday season.


  1. I love the bottom one!!! cant wait to see it in color!

  2. Yeah i agree I like the bottom one very original!

  3. i like the bottom one, too! it works with your stationery. just lovely:)

  4. the picture of the cake looks really good. Really professional looking ad!

  5. Now this is what I'm talking about.

  6. Now this is the Sarah that I have come to enjoy as designer and illustrator. Can't wait to see what you do with all those sugary colors in the Ad. Much better that referencing old masters. You are embracing your art more and it shows. Don't be afraid to move into a comfort level with your style and image-making.
