Oh man, the deadly combo of Thanksgiving cook-a-thons, cyber Monday shopping, and Etsy orders didn't leave much room for my little NaFauxRiMo experiment, did it? I think I am going to continue working through the list of assignments without putting a deadline on it, because life has enough deadlines as it is, am I right, ladies??*
* "Am I right, ladies?" is my new catchphrase.
Anyhoo, I'm so excited to share with you some of the projects I've been working on these last few weeks! Above, you can see the Christmas card I made for my tumblr pal Meghan of the blog M. D. Lawson. I have to say, I'm really proud of how it turned out. As a Nice Jewish Girl, it is rare that I get to study the way Santa hats drape on various heads or figure out what the most common hues are for multicolored tree lights, so this was a real treat. Aren't they such a cute little family?
Other than that family portrait, the other portraits lately have been simpler:
This girl rocked dark blue streaks and red lipstick in her reference photos. I approve.
This one was commissioned by the mother of a little six-year-old girl. I also did some uncolored versions with different hairstyles for the girl to color in. What a fun idea!
Lastly, another portrait for Meghan (this one actually came before the Christmas card).
Other projects in the works are: a pair of customized paper dolls for a client's parents with their wedding outfits (an idea I am totally stealing for my family come Chanukah!), more work with my favorite cupcake lady, some various logo designs, AND getting my prints sold in an actual brick-and-mortar shop! I am so excited about this! More details to come!
