Inspired by early 90s basketball cards, this is the set of 5 valentines I designed for Brooklyn-based fashion designer Natty Paint. Also Included here is a bonus 6th design (last one at the bottom) which was nixed before the deadline and never made the print run. The valentines were given away as promotional pieces at Pool Tradeshow in Las Vegas, February 13-15, 2012.
Natty Paint grabbed plenty of attention at the art and design-driven fashion trade show for emerging brands. Fashion retailers scouted NP's latest clothing lines designed specifically for the boutique market, and these valentines helped her seal a few deals in Vegas!
Natty Paint and I would also very much like to thank talented photographer Ely Kay for working with us and granting us the use of his images. You can check out his work on Flickr.
