Nail Salon Unmasked – Book Cover design

This book cover design was finished in November 2014. The book is about the history of Nail Salons in the US, beginning with 2 very first women – who are called “the Godmother of the nail salon”, and then how the industry grew up until nowadays.

I was excited with this project because this was related to my homeland: Vietnam. Though these manicurists started their business in a faraway land – not Vietnam – but I still see the connection between us. I had a chance to work with the author: Claudette Varnado, and we had a great discussion during making the cover.

Later on she tried other designs and finally, she didn’t choose my cover version 😛 but it was a nice experience to me.

Cute Color pencil Drawings

These are 2 hand-drawn illustrations – nearly my first designs when I started working as a designer/illustrator in September 2014. That time everything was so new and exciting to me. These were ordered by a lovely girl from Peru – who talked to me a lot like we are friends 😀 and she just needed them as a gift to save the memory.

These days I’m collecting all of my designs from the very beginning in 2014 until now 😀 so some of them are really not good. But life is like walking on a long road and when you look back, you will see a great progression.

Now I don’t often make illustrations in hand-drawn style like this. Most of the orders I’ve received recently required vector format. You can check my Tumblr blog to see my current style.

Series of the little red-headed girl and her friends

These are a series of illustrations about the little red-headed girl and her friends.

At first the idea is just a group of friends got surprised by a penguin. Then Christopher – my customer in Hawaii – said that he was impressed by the red-headed girl I drew for him, so he went ahead with a series as you can see below 🙂 He gave me his interesting idea on what to draw and here is how I brought his ideas into life.

I had such a great love to draw these illustrations. And yesterday my cousins said that they checked my Facebook and they were so cute to them lol.
