Character Designs

The main character design for my current project, ChefArella, has been approved. Huzzah! She's cute, no?

These were my original sketches (below). Ultimately, we decided to go a little younger. She's cute, but not quite right for the project. Who knows, maybe she'll re-incarnate in my work somewhere else, one day.

Nordic Kids Postcards

They're here! I have new postcards. OK, I realize it's March and most of the snow is gone. But, as usual, I'm a little late posting. These actually went out last month. I've had this image on my site for a while, now. I posted the original (and a close-up) below for better viewing. I wanted to go a little moodier for the postcard, and darkened the background. I went with Vistaprint again, and re-used my design from the last postcard. Coincidentally, the dots and half-dot elements mirror the gingerbread details on the house, and the logo looks a little like a moon. Perfect!

I did a little winterizing of my logo. Here's a close-up.
