this week’s theme for illustration friday is: DUET!
Author Archives: thecuteinstitute
I received this ad from a friend at work for the new MAC makeup collection: QUITE CUTE. A soft pastel spring collection of kawaii inspired colors and shades for lips, eyes & nails. Every girl’s dream has come true!
If you search online, you can barely find anything about it yet since it’ll be launched this April. I just can’t wait to get my hands on somer products and give them a try. Take a look at the artwork. So kawaii ! I lovvve it!!!
As a graphic designer, seeing work like this makes me very happy and gives me hope that maybe one day, all these mega big companies will give artists like us a chance to shine. Allthought I’m really not crazy about the font used, in my opinion it’s not very kawaii or readable for that matter, they should of used a bubbly sweet font to complement the cute characters…
Voici des characters on the ads: kawaiii bats, squid, panda bear etc… ADORABLE! 🙂 I like.
sorry for the low resolution images, I had to scan this ad.

❤ Hi guys!! I’m really excited to go see the new movie; Gnomeo & Juliet this weekend! I’ll let you know how it is. From the previews it looks super cute. I decided to create a gnome version of myself. Miss gnomette; my gnalter-ego!
I discovered this little gem in montreal and wanted to share some of their work with you. I haven’t been there yet but it’s just a matter of time until i try some of those Harajuku or kawaii nails. The place is called: CANDY NAIL BAR it’s on St-Hubert in Montreal. Check it out. They even offer private mani parties for a group of friends at a discount price. Very tempting!!!!!! (LOVE THEIR LOGO)
Here’s the FACEBOOK page link.
and some of their work. AMAZING!
