Clearance: Retail Observations

As I was at work the other day, ensuring the racks of clothes looked loved and cared for... I was having a disscusion with an associate about how people shop. Before I go on, let me say we are both happy with our jobs, grateful even, considering the places we are at in our respective lives. So, don't think I am complaining about any of that. I just thoroughly enjoy people watching, and retail is the perfect place to do it. As we were talking, I came up with what I considered to be an brilliant idea. I was so excited about making classification sheets for every shopper I have encountered that I started brainstorming all through work. Obviously I can't write anything down, so I had to make mental notes. So far I've come up with seven. Here is the first. With this, I officially introduce you to the series called "Clearance: Retail Observations."


  1. This is a GREAT idea. I also love people watching, so I'm looking forward to seeing how you translate them into illustrations. I may be ahead of myself here, but this series could potentially turn into a full scale website someday.

  2. Thanks! But yeah, I was actually thinking about the possibility of it taking off into its own website, which is super exciting. I'm going to get all seven of them done first and see where it morphs. Projects sometimes take on lives of their own.

    LIz! WOW! Fantastic~ You are an incredibly talented, funny girl :) I love it. Agree, it's own site would be a great way to showcase this unique idea. You may just have something here. Can't wait to see how this evolves.


  4. Thank you Kimberlee! That means a lot. :)
