Vintage Car Soap Illustrations

I have exciting news!!!

Vintage Car Soap Illustrations designed for Anthropologie by Elise Engh

I've partnered with Anthropologie to design some fun summer soaps!!! I just got my samples in the mail today! 


Last fall, a nice lady from the Anthropologie Beauty Department contacted me about creating some illustrations for their soap program.  At first I thought it was a joke-- I love that store--- how did they find me?! I replied and said yes, I'd love to work with you guys! Then the ball got rolling and I got to work sketching, painting, scanning, emailing, etc.

It was a ton of work, but oh so worth it!!

After a couple of months and many many revisions later, I handed over three large watercolor and ink vintage car illustrations in digital form to Anthropologie!  They put them on their soap packaging and now they are being sold in their online store and some of their brick-and-mortar stores too.  These little babies will be in all 215+ Anthropologie stores this summer!  I can't wait to see them at the City Creek store in Salt Lake City!!


Ok, enough exclamations, time for some photos....

    1. Thanks! They found images of my blue vw beetle painting online, which led them to my Etsy shop. I feel really lucky they found me!
