A poster design for a feminine perfume Bandit by Robert Piguet.
"Bandit is the most daring in the whole line of perfumes like Caron Tabac Blond and Chanel Cuir de Russie, perfumes for an emancipated woman on the turn of the last century; for a woman who dares to smoke in the public. Bandit was made for the avantgarde Robert Piguet's collection, inspired by romantic sea voyages and pirates. Bandit is a classic "chypre" with dark animal notes and aggressive leather accord. In 1999, after 25 years, production of Bandit started again. Eau de toilette has the greatest sharpness. In the perfume version, leather and smoke notes are followed by clear notes of white flowers and vetiver. Bandit was launched in 1944. The nose behind this fragrance is Germaine Cellier."

This piece is based on the chapter 'Trust' from Dylan Landis' novel 'Rainey Royal'. Rainey Royal is a fourteen-year-old girl who is going through a self discovery as a young artist. The first piece portrays how quiet and uninteresting an apartment building can look from the outside in New York City. Contrasting from the first piece, the second piece depicts the aftermath of Rainey's room after she and her friend heisted a couple. The objects are all scattered and messy in a pattern-like manner to represent Rainey's rebelliousness. The colour palette is very minimal. Pink and blue is chosen to represent Rainey's youthfulness. The different shades of pink and blue adds sensuality to the illustration in order to convey Rainey's complex personality.

The Mouse, the Bird, and the Sausage is tale no.23 of the Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Although not as well known as their other tales, —such as Snow White and Cinderella—The Mouse, the Bird, and the Sausage is an exciting tale filled with both humor and tragedy. The three main characters lived harmoniously together, each having their own role to fulfill. This, however, does not last long after one of them becomes resentful of the others' duties, leading to a catastrophe. Inspired by artists like Mayumi Otero and Raphael Urwiller of Icinori, and Becky and Joe –creators of Don’t hug Me I’m Scared–, the story is set in a non-existent lonesome world filled with vibrant and vivacious complementary colours.
This pattern is inspired by the traditional Japanese Seigaihai, wave pattern but with a twist.
