Commissioned illustrations for stacking cups by Shlos

In the autumn of 2012 last year I had the pleasure of working with my friend and product designer Chloe Lee Carson on an idea for her first ever product to go to market. Based on the idea of the game 'Exquisite Corpse', I created a series of 9 different illustrations to be applied to sets of stacking cups. When twisted, the body parts of the various animals and people on each cup would join up to create a new surreal creature. 

Shortly after Chloe entered the idea under the design name Shlos into a design competition/mentoring scheme with the Southbank Centre and Observer, eventually becoming one of the finalists. The cups can now been seen and bought in the Southbank shop! It's such an achievement to see my illustrations on products instore. 

You see the stacking cups here on the Southbank Centre shop website -
