Earlier this year we introduced Japan-born, UK-educated, Melbourne based illustrator Emi Ueoka, whose distinctive delicate line drawings have earnt her commissions from clients including The New York Times and The New Yorker, Bloomberg, and a little closer to home, Readings bookstore!

This week, Emi launches her first range of greetings cards, just in time for the festive season.  Entitled ‘O! Paper‘, the range explores a more imaginative side of Emi’s drawings. ‘the series is dreamier and more playful than my editorial and personal work, with more elements of fantasy – but still mostly girls!’ says Emi!

Keen to ensure the range has a ‘personal touch’ without appearing overtly handmade, Emi hand cuts and folds all her 100% cotton cards. The illustrations are then also screen printed by hand at her studio.  Top effort!

‘I’ve been wanting to make greeting cards for a long time and I’ve been working with O! Paper in mind for about a year’ explains Emi.  ‘With the production I’ve tried to incorporate a balance of techniques. I hope the results feel gentle, sweet and fun.’

O! Paper cards are priced at $5.50 each, and can be purchased online here, or at the official launch party this evening at The Good Copy in Collingwood, Melbourne!
