Christmas Cards in Pencil
Christmas cards for some of my friends:
"May you find prosperity this Holiday Season and in the New Year"
"May all of your dreams come true this Holiday Season"
"From one fish to another, Merry Christmas!" -- we're both Pieces
"May you shed your worries this holiday season" -- Niko sheds like crazy
"May you receive an extra helping of Love this Holiday Season" -- he's into bears...the human kind...you'll have to come to your own conclusions privately.
Very sweet - I like that they're so personalized .
I like how you captured the expression on the dog's face, such a simple rendering and yet it has everything it needs. That is something I still struggle with... resisting the temptation to add more to a picture instead of letting the eye fill in the details and leave abit to the imagination.
I'm so excited! I had to go to the dentist so that he could fix a filling, but I couldn't bear to stop working on one of my cards, so I brought it with me. Long story short, the dentist's receptionist is commissioning me to do a portrait of her two dogs! This is the card I was working on:
"May your holiday season be merciful..." <---Don King is a lovable but crabby dog. He co-starred with my friend Cindy in the "Cindy Noir" comic that I did this summer.
Two more to go for some random people, so they won't be quite so targeted =)
