trompe l’oeil painting details

Just a few snaps of a mural, trompe l’oeil painting I made years ago for a decorator working on the interior of a luxury hotel in Kirkland, WA. – This one one of the penthouse suites that had 2 hidden closets behind my paintings. Literally had about 2.5 days to complete both and move on to the next. Fun times.

Disney / Sephora packaging – mirror compacts

Disney, graphic design, illustration, package design, Sephora

I created these Package designs for Sephora, with 6 Disney Characters. Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Frozen (Elsa & Anna), Snow White. The work includes an illustration on the top of the compact lid, and then the entire box or package was thought out. They were available only on Sephora’s website and the downtown LA Disney store in Orange county, Anaheim.

I used a few existing stock Disney silhouette vector images for each, created the colors, package layouts, patterned backgrounds, the compact lid illustrations, font choices, entire box design.

The client requested a photo-manipulation to see what the mantel would look like with a dark paint or black bricks and also put a on dark wooden top. The photo on the left, with white paint is the real mantel. It also has a faux wooden top photoshopped to show what it would look like with wood, and not a painted top.

Breakfast room painting

This is an old painting project. I’m trying to remember the year but am having a hard time. 😉 . . . I painted the walls and umbrella vaulted ceiling in the round room. – It was a showcase house in Los Altos Hills, CA.
