Christmas Card 2007

Here's the 2007 Xmas card/self-promo piece that I sent out to everyone. As always, it took 3 times longer to do than I thought it would (probably because at the time I was just learning to use my new graphic tablet).

Looking back, I wish I'd have integrated the text and image a little more instead of them being completely separate entities, but that's the way it goes.

I'd kind of like to revisit this illustration some day. As I said, I was just learning how to use my tablet when I did this, and I know a lot more about how to use it now. I think I could definitely improve the drawing.

You can see a primitive early version of my signature/logo in the corner. I think this was the first time I ever used it, and I went back and tweaked it afterward.

Drawn in Photoshop on the graphic tablet.

  2. Thanks! If I remember right I think I did try to add the text over the image, but it didn't stand out very well.
