At long last, here is the work I did in partnership with Saurette (a high-end children's clothing brand) for their Fall 2010 collection:
Here is the press release:
SAURETTE COMMISSIONS L.A. ARTIST, JAW COOPER, TO COLLABORATE ON ARTWORK FOR THE FALL 2010 COLLECTION
New York City- January 25, 2010- Saurette, a contemporary clothing line for girls ages 2-12, has commissioned L.A. artist "Cooper" to design artwork for the Fall 2010 collection. Keeping with the signature look of Saurette, including billowy dresses and beautifully detailed separates, Cooper's ethereal drawings will add something fresh and exciting to the Saurette brand that hasn't yet been done in the childrenswear market.
Cooper, also known as Jessica Cooper, is a Los Angeles based artist whose work in paint, ink, sketching and sculpture has been featured all over the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas. She has always cultivated a deep curiosity for the natural world and is inspired by forms found in nature, fashion photography, and curio cabinets. Much of Coopers work features fantasy themed landscapes, which is what attracted Saurette designer Lisa Kanouse to her work. "As a designer, I am always looking for fresh & exciting concepts for future collections that spur emotional responses. When I discovered Cooper's work, I was immediately drawn to her whimsical artwork and knew it would be a perfect complement to the Saurette Fall 2010 collection."
The Fall 2010 Saurette collection has several pieces incorporating Cooper's artwork. From art printed tees to embroidered jackets and fanciful appliquéd dresses, the new collection hopes to spark imagination and gain a larger audience. The line is currently previewing with Thread Kids in New York City and Atlanta, AB Spoon in Los Angeles, Hope's Chest in Dallas, and New Age Baby in Chicago. Saurette can also be seen at the upcoming childrenswear shows: Stylemax: January 30-February 2 in Chicago, IL and ENK Children's Club: March 7-9 in New York, NY.
