Hothy Holidays 2013 – Wampa

Another illustration that I have revised. And this one for 2013 Christmas Cards. The wampa was always one of my favorite toys as a kid. I only wished his arm would have popped off.

Hothy Holidays: Part 1 – Star Wars Viper droid

Posting a few Star Wars inspired cards I created for Christmas this year. I wrapped up a few gifts and used these as labels for my brother and other Star Wars obsessed fans.  I love the Empire Strikes Back, and the Hoth playsets were my favorite as a child. Inspired to create a theme of Christmas on Hoth cards. First up: the Viper probe droid decorating a tree. I tried to get all the legs to look good, but I think even with that he felt a bit static. So I added a small “happy shape” on his top. That seemed to add a bit of holiday cheer that was missing.

The Family Tree

A quick post for the new year. Just wanted to post a holiday illustration I have been working on. Sadly I’m taking the tree down tomorrow afternoon. Needed to add some type and design to this, but haven’t found the time (and it’s a bit too late to mail anything out now).

More to come in 2012.

Illustration Friday – Winter

Christmas hangover. Traveling way too much and back to work today. Whew. Gathering up a few winter and holiday themed images. I’ll keep adding more to my page during the next few days. And here I thought I was done with Christmas.

Festivus 2010!

I think I’m fully recovered from a crazy weekend of shopping, partying and just plain being merry. I hosted my 7th Annual Festivus party on Saturday evening. Another fun evening of food, friends, holiday sweaters, mustaches, music and dancing. I created a poster for the event. I didn’t have time to create full size prints, but I used this on all of the invites and trivia cards. Hopefully next year I can print a few off and hand them out for prizes.

Draw and Cook: Egg Nog Milkshake

I was so excited this afternoon to find my illustration posted over at theydrawandcook.com I was going to submit a recipe on making the perfect White Russian, but I’ll save that for another time. Or maybe there will be a new site for they draw and drink? Hmm…

Illustration Friday – Savour

Combining a few illustration elements from the last few days. I’ve been busy working on a few different projects for Christmas and parties. I have a few more illustrations to post in the next few days. I’ll see how this weekend goes.
Even squirrels find time to savour the holiday season with a cup of egg nog. If only they made it all year round.

Target Giftcards Part 2

 

 
Here’s a second round of Target giftcards from 2006-2009. Each of these had their own unique features. The Birthday Burro had sticker tails to attach to the card. You could use the gingerbreadman as an ornament on your Christmas tree. And the Rodeo Bullseye had a spring built into the back so he rocked back and forth on the card.
