Eye Candy

  

By Ali Mac

 

 

Cannery Row. I drew this on a flight back to NYC from Monterey, California. This was the start of my vintage packaging illustrations. 

 

Caturday Laundry. Laundry would be so much more enjoyable with cats. Too bad I don't have any cats. 

 

Domino SP17. A dreamy desk scape.

 

Dream Nook. A corner in my fantasy space.

 

Elephant Matchbox. This is one of my favorites. I drew this from an old Swedish matchbox. 

 

Monmouth County. Where I used to live. Please note the homage to my hero, Bruce Springsteen.

 

NYC. Where I live now. 

 

Parisian Street. Where I want to live for a little while.

 

Popcorn. My favorite snack when I'm binge-watching Netflix shows.

 

Tide. Did I mention that I hate doing my laundry? I did enjoy making this sweet stack of patterns. If only my clothes were this happy. My closet looks like a dingy dungeon.

 

Toaster. One of my favorite movies as a little girl was The Brave Little Toaster. I made a lady friend for the main character. Don't you just wish you could fart pop tarts? 

 

Miel Pur. My favorite. I started this series of vintage botanicals because I couldn't seem to keep a real cactus alive for more than 2 months.
