Monkeys and elephants parading through circus tents and palm trees are the highlights of the new Jour du Cirque collection for Wooster & Prince. Inspired by vintage circus prints found at a flea market, I was taken by the half-serious, half-smiling faces of the little animal characters preparing for their acts.
Though this artwork is a slight departure for me from pattern into illustration, I had so much fun creating the playful circus vignettes and found that, when colored in a soft, sophisticated palette, the result was elegant, child-like and fantastical … perfect for the new acccessories line for Wooster & Prince.
The Jour du Cirque patterns can be found on new Wooster & Prince Purse Mirrors, Emery Boards, Desktop Notes, Notecard Portfolios and Art Paper. You can also find the Jour du Cirque patterns on paper napkins and a darling new line of porcelain by PaperProducts Design.
