Oriental Rugs, Inc.
designed many ads and yearly holiday
cards for this "to the trade" company.
This image is the opened view of
a Holiday Season card.
Exclusive owner, Reza Esmaili, had begun his own creative work when not marketing his rugs, and wrote a children's book of which he expressed that it be part of the illustration for the holiday card.
Charmaine staged children in the position she wanted for the drawing and photographed them. She then combined that drawing with other drawings she did from a rug photo and a tree.
The illustration was done in Adobe Photoshop and imported into QuarkXpress for press.
