Jeffrey Campbell x Solestruck Box It Up

I bet many of you heard about (or even entered) the Jeffrey Campbell x Solestruck Box It Up challenge that took place last month that's giving one lucky person the opportunity to score $1000 worth of JC shoes and be the inspiration for the next shoebox design. And while I think they're still in the process of narrowing down three top finalists to display via their Facebook page for voters to decide the grand winner, I thought I'd take a second and share my entry with you!
About my design:
When I first learned of the challenge via e-mail, I got super excited at the prospect of designing and illustrating something that would appeal to the masses amongst our little shoe-obsessed demographic. I get asked a lot of interesting questions regarding my own shoe collection, so I spent the afternoon rummaging through the multicolored stacks of shoeboxes and paying particular attention the many labeled Jeffrey Campbell. The search for inspiration wasn’t difficult, and soon I knew exactly what I wanted. It was then that I sat down with my 2B and HB pencils and let the JC Girls inspiration come to life!

Staying within the specs of the provided templates, creativity, personal interest, confidence, and a seasonal concept influenced every step of my design approach. Melding the quintessential JC appeal with my own personal style pioneering, I incorporated a mix of pencil, ink, and variegated, dirty watercolor to achieve the final design. Really hoping I make it into the top three!! Or even cooler, to actually win!

I usually don't take time to write comments like this that just clog up someone's blog but I have to say that the focus of this shoebox design has nothing to do with birds. It's based on the needs and wants of Jeffrey Campbell and Solestruck challenge written about in the post and it's really beautiful. It's not like there's a picture of a bird stuck on it and that's all that's happening on the box. So if you're attempting to discredit Bella's art then you failed. If you're kidding then you can't tell. If you were being rude then you shouldn't bother leaving comments.
Btw, it also has nothing to do with "Put a bird on it" and call it art.

you are so talented, its gorgeous!
