Someone once told me that taking care of your skin is like taking care of your leather shoes. The more attention you give them, the longer they will last. I don’t have leather shoes, and knowing me I wouldn’t take care them anyways, but I did have wonderful acne growing up. My dermatologist used to prescribe me this weird acid that looked like something out of a medical lab. I’m pretty sure it did more harm than good.
None the less, I always put effort into taking care of my skin way before the dude with the leather shoes, but my efforts only gave me mild relief until I stopped caring. Luckily, I was then introduced to Kiehl’s, and I never looked back.
I remember hearing about the Kiehl’s artist series through some of the artist’s I grew up paying attention to, most notably Faile and Buffmonster. So when they approached me it was a quick yes.
Here’s some of the artwork I worked on for a bunch of packaging elements, with a narrative that touches on the intertwining of the human condition and our dependence on nature.
