So as you all know (mom) I work in-house at a home fashion company – Enchante Accessories. I was asked to design some frames with a east coast feeling for Walgreens. They saw my work and snapped it up (after making some changes) They made them more specifically located also. The biggest test of a commercial artist is keeping open to collaboration and never being married to any idea, oh- and realizing that whats marketable is going to be chosen because of mass appeal not just what your personal preference is. I actually like all those aspects of working in our industry its fun to me to see your work differently and its fun to see your stuff in stores, getting used by people. What do you graphic design professionals think? Would you rather be all fine art? Or is fine art for sale in fact commercial mass appeal art too?
so here is my original design (looking so different as a jpeg) :
And here are the actual frames made on screen-printed glass, for sale in Walgreens!
