2016 Christmas Illustrations




They're here, finally! I know I've been teasing about posting these for way too long, but I couldn't resist. I also took longer than usual to complete them. I've been incredibly busy this season, and didn't plan well, so I didn't draw as much as I wanted to, but I'm happy enough with these three. They're a bit messy and imperfect, but that's pretty much me this month anyway, so it's fitting. I like the imperfections. I need to note however, that all three of these look better in person. Remember that. Remember that the scanner washes them out a bit. 

Anyway, this month has gone by way too fast, and I feel like I'm trying to catch and hold it, if only to savor it for a few more peaceful moments. I hope I'll get to do that this week, and I hope you do too, if you feel so inclined. Today I'll be baking more cookies and wrapping my Christmas gifts. I'm feeling a lot less stressed today, and a lot more festive. 

Are any of you working on Christmas prep already? Let me know!

  5. Have you done illustration commissions or sold your work? I can see these on cards or the covers of notebooks. Seriously.
