After seeing a wreath made of leaves, I was inspired to making something like it out of cut up Life Savers.

Since I really didn’t know what to do, I simply just made another Life Saver turkey, but this time only using Illustrator.

No, I did not actually make this, I’m sorry to say. But while I was home over break, my mom and I were looking at cute holiday crafts to make and I came across this cute little guy. I thought it would be really cool to make a Life Saver Turkey lollipop. And yes, I photoshopped this picture to display my idea concept.

49. What I’m Thankful For

When we first received this directive, I was completely clueless on what I was going to do because I had already something for Thanksgiving last week. So I just decided to make a simple list of things I am thankful for.

48. Elephant in the Room

Filed under: Life Savers, Week 11: No Directive

In my Awkward Turtle post, I had talked about my brain storming process and how an awkward song had gotten me thinking about an “elephant in the room.” I created this all (minus the background that I found on the internet) in Illustrator, NOT Photoshop. Anyways, I was thinking if there was an elephant in the room, than there would have to be an unspoken problem (who’s going to eat the cheese), and the elephant would just be completely ignored. I gave the elephant Life Saver ears, that way he could hear what each mouse was thinking. No this image has nothing to do with the promotion of Life Savers, the elephant is just using them for better hearing.

Yes, my elephant drawing was inspired by Dumbo.

47. New Life Saver Logo

As I had previously stated in an earlier post from this week, I had been looking at past art work I had created and I came across a really crazy font I had created in Illustrator about 2 years ago. So I used that font as an inspiration to create a new logo for Life Savers. Granted, it looks more like it belongs on a cereal box, and not a candy logo’s font, but I really felt like trying something different.

46. Awkward Turtle

Yesterday, while I was brain storming on something to create, I was listening to a song about a very awkward situation. Normally my brain storming process involves word association, so it went like this: awkward situation song→ elephant in the room→ animal→ awkward animal→ awkward turtle. I stopped at awkward turtle, because I thought would would be more awkward than if a turtle were to meet another turtle made out of Life Savers and was basically a fake/ imitator/ poser. I would personally find that extremely awkward if I were to meet a another person just like me, made out of Life Savers.
