Christmas ’13: Away in a Manger

Thursday’s Christmas doodle for #HoHoDooDa.

I challenged myself to try a manger scene in a dif style. This is where it is at this point. I have Mary & Joseph, and a cow and chicken sketched out to encircle the remainder of the scene, but I started stumbling over it. Joseph looks okay, but Mary….And then the chicken and cow weren’t coming off either. So I’ll work on them some more; push through. And I have no idea at the moment what to do with the setting/background. Maybe I can get this done by Christmas…

Christmas ’13: Mrs. Clause Goes Shopping

Yes, a “doodle” (though not so dashed-off) for #HoHoDooDa. Playing around in another style and seeing where it goes. That’s what doodling is for sometimes. And I don’t like to over-work my stuff so I like the imperfections.

Halloween Greeting Card

Shameless advertising (Isn’t that what this blog is for…? : )

This little girl witch image was part of a promotional I did with the Illustration For Kids gang. Eventually it was modified a bit, and ended up being licensed for a “Happy Halloween, Granddaughter” greeting card. Nice to see it get some use!

Halloween Fun

Some personal work that I used for my Facebook and Twitter pages that I had a lot of fun doing. I even made a simple pattern! More to come, hopefully.
