Stride gum was launching a new brand of chewing gum called iD Gum. Targeted toward teens, it was introduced to the public featuring art created by people all over the globe. I was lucky enough to have one of my illustrations be a part of the initial packaging and it is still being produced on one of their peppermint gum boxes.
I had originally done the ink drawing for a friend of his adorable Boston Terrier, Kaci. We both found it pretty entertaining as we watched his pup get all kinds of national attention on Facebook through her ink and wash portrait drawing.
The brand has featured a variety of art and photography from artists all over the world and it is still exciting to see mine on the shelves.
