Sleeping Beauty concept art by Eyvind Earle.
The first project of the semester for my Illustration 2 class. We were to create a beverage, and design and construct the packaging for our beverage. In addition to the beverage mockup, we had to create a layout that shows the flat pieces our box was made of, as well as a digital 3D rendering of the box with the designs.
The beverage I came up with was called Goldilocks and the Root Bears, and it is an assorted root beer pack with a targeted audience of kids and parents who like quirky sodas. The package comes with 4 flavours: Papa Bear (regular root beer), Mama Bear (diet root beer), Baby Bear (vanilla root beer), and Goldilocks (cream soda).
I’ll take higher-quality pictures of the box once I have access to a better camera, but for now all I have are cell phone pictures U^U
The project took a total of one month, and it was a ton of work, but I am very excited about the outcome! :-)
Story of Golden Locks (c.1870). Seymour Joseph Guy (American, 1824–1910). Oil on canvas.
In this canvas, a girl reads the titular story to two little boys, presumably her brothers. Her menacing shadow on the attic bedroom’s wall and the boys’ wide eyes suggest that she is recounting the story’s most frightening moment. Fairy tales were appreciated for their moral content at this time, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears was valued as warning children not to wander off on their own.
