As usual at this time of year I have been designing Christmas cards for friends and family. However, I also completed two additional little Christmas design projects.
Firstly, I was asked if I’d like to contribute a picture for the Skwigly web site advent calendar. It seemed like a bit of fun, so I accepted. For reasons unknown, even to myself, I drew Christmas tree missiles raining down on the surface of the Earth. Cheery.
Lots of other great artists and illustrators also contributed to the calendar. Go check them out. I feel honoured to be in their company.
My second project was to design a card for A Productions. My brief was that it could not include anything Christmas related. That narrows down your choices for a Christmas card. So I went for perhaps the well worn subject of a winter landscape. But I do quite like stark images like this.
