So I am embarking on my latest project which is creating a series of Christmas cards and yes, I am starting them in July. This might seem a bit early however what I’m doing is somewhat ambitious as I am attempting to do the “Twelve Days of Christmas.”
I kicked off this project last year in October but with only two drawings – “Nine Ladies Dancing” and “A Partridge in a Pear Tree.” “Partridge” was the only one that actually went into production and by production I mean I printed those babies from my printer and sent them out to everyone on my Christmas card list.
This year I vowed to not only start this project much earlier, but also to FINISH it. So far the ones that I can conceive with the most clarity are “Seven Swans a-Swimming,” ” Six Geese A-Laying” , and “Eight Maids-Milking.” Right now I am working on Seven Swans and they are coming along quite nicely. Here is a preview.
