The Yellow Sticker Club

Here’s the image editor Laura Black chose for this story, The Yellow Sticker Club, by Cath Holland.

And here is the artwork with the banner. Take a look at this image. And then…

    I really enjoyed this story – and not just because I did the reduced sticker job in a supermarket years ago. I really like the textures in your illustration and the way the yellow radiates warmth while juxtaposed against those chilly colours.

      Thank you. You know, I colloect those plastic bread closing things, not the twisties, the plastic flat ones. As soon as I fill up my jar that the entire collection is in, I am going to take them out and arrange them by date. For some reason this seems important. Anyway, it tells you, I pay attention to tags and bread!

    This illustration complements The Yellow Sticker Club by Cath Holland perfectly. In it I see the supermarket aisles, a cluster of customers and, of course, the yellow stickers. The palette so cleverly suggests warmth on the one hand, but that something could be off kilter, on the other. Perfect, Claudia, and thank you.

      Thank you. I like this color scheme a lot with the range from pink to the green gold color, with that off red to give it a focus. There is order and disorder here in this image. I think of a supermarket in this way, the products neatly arranged, the shoppers taking that order apart, as in this story.
