Christmas in April


The licensing world does not wait for snow to get crackin on Christmas fare. I've been getting in the Christmas spirit, designing cards. These are some preliminary designs--don't be surprised when you see a post titled "Christmas in May" with slightly different offerings.   

My process: I've been working with low-res iPhone snaps of seperate paintings and laying them out in Photoshop while I work towards making a cohesive line. (Apparently I like trying new, individual styles, so it's been tricky to keep them cohesive.) With a plan in my pocket, I'll scan them and make hi-res finals. 

Don't get stuck on a particular look you're going for, play with the possibilities. 

Keep painting,
A
