New Baby Card Ideas!

May 29, 2010

Hey everyone,

I’m often asked whether I have a card for someone who’s just had a new baby, and as of yet the answer’s been no. Until now!

So today I’m here to show you my two latest card designs! I’m dying to know what you guys think. So do let me know which your favourite one is. Now you may love them both, and if this is the case – that’s ok. You may not like either of them, and if this is the case – keep it to yourself! Hopefully you’ll like at least one of them anyway.

Here you go:

Thanks for coming, see you again soon.



A card for my brother’s birthday

August 13, 2009

Hello again everyone!

Today I was stung by a wasp and it hurt so much it is madness. Just thought I’d share that as it’s still hurting now and it happened just before lunch (it’s midnight now)!

I thought, seeing as I haven’t even started sorting out the cat drawings at all, that I’d do a different post first. My brother is going to be 30 in a few days (on the 16th) and so I thought I should think of an idea just for him. It’s a big birthday and it needed some attention put into it so I got to work. He’s a computer game tester and general avid gamer so I was thinking along those lines initially.

I drew a few rough ideas and played around with some stuff, but to be honest it was only the second or third idea I had that I realised was a very good one.

So I got to work drawing a few different versions of it (this was originally at the garden opening so I had to pay attention for customers at the same time) and eventually I had some relatively good ones. So I scanned them in so I could make them a bit neater and turn them into a respectable card, and thus his card was born. See the final design below:

Hopefully he’ll appreciate the time spent, as it must have taken a good 3 hours work in the end. And it’s rather amusing I thought. I even looked up pictures of the NES and Playstation to make sure they were drawn accurately (to a degree).

Anyway, love to hear what people think.

Good day,
