Penguins and other progress

This was a little invite I whipped up yesterday for my niece. I used roughly the same technique as my daughter's 1st birthday invites. I inked a sketch, scanned it, then finished it digitally in photoshop.

It's been a whole month since my last post. I had to scratch my head and wonder what I've been up to.

I've made great strides on a second picture book dummy. The manuscript is VERY short, so it's been a struggle to find just the exact-right visual to match. In time I'll start experimenting with the style of the finish for this book. It's so simple, it might need to look a bit different than my usual gouache style.

Also, I just got back a cool little promo I want to pop in the mail next week. I'll show it off once they hit their destinations. It's a very short run of a story told in 4 business cards (mailed together). More on this to come.

Happy weekend to all!
