Where’s My Carmex?

Hi I’m Irene, and I am a junior majoring in illustration at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. My illustration style is whimsical and narrative. I really enjoy using bright colors and like experimenting with various mediums such as digital artwork, acrylic and oil painting, ink and graphite drawings, etc. I’m inspired by nonsensical narratives and attempts to bring humor into my own work. This project was inspired by my own disappointing experience of losing my Carmex. Since then, I’ve carried one in every pocket.
