Like last year, my plan is to make a card/book combo, in the style of Little Golden Books.
I don't want to get into what it's about right now, because I don't want to spoil the surprise. I will say that it's not about an elf, although there are elves in it. I'm trying to make it look like that painterly kid's book style, which is something I'm definitely not used to doing.
I'm racing against the clock trying to get it done, just like always. I'm working 60 hours a week now in addition to the usual stuff that's going on, so it's probably gonna be a photo finish. Seems like no matter how early I start on a project like this, it expands to fill the available amount of time.
