Melissa Chaib’s work first appeared to me as a submission on the Brown Paper Bag Tumblr, and I’m so glad it did. The illustrator’s colorful images are illustrated products, including cards, prints, and soon-to-be notebooks.
If you visit her shop, you’ll find that a lot of the stock is of cards. Chaib’s emphasis is on these social expressions, writing, “Our work celebrates the adventures in life, our mission is to create original, inspiring greeting cards and products that connect and enrich people’s lives… We make products for you to enjoy the funny, crazy moments with the people you love. “
Check out the hand lettering, too! It’s on nearly everything Chaib paints, and is very well done.
