Shotview X’mas Campaign

Shotview Agency
Kozva Rigau approached me with a commission. She wanted to make a campaign to promote her exclusive Creative Agency. A series of limited edition T-shirts and Cards were done under the slogan “hit my eyes”. I’ve created a series of illustrations that translates that slogan, through the attitudes of the models and the use of color. We finally selected two, the one for the t-shirt plays with the analogy of a girl that takes of her t-shirt printed in a t-shirt, and the second one is the inviting gaze of young girl, in between a lover look and a predator in disguised.
