I love it when it's time to make a card for somebody for whatever reason, because I like to use it as a mini typography project!

The cards always end up taking longer than expected because I spend so much time on them, but I find the results often very effective. Some work out better than others, but each one is a development process and leads to the idea for the next one.

Here are two recent ones which I really thought turned out well:

I really like this idea and I'm going to develop it further. I especially prefer the Happy Birthday one: I like the looseness and fluidity of the shape. I also tried using colour and again, that works. I often prefer black and white drawing and getting shading with pen thickness and/ or stippling, but in this instance the colour really pops.

GIF Work In Progress

This is something I've been wanting to make for quite a while now since developing a low poly illustration style.

I thought I'd start with a fairly simple head turn movement and then if it works, maybe develop the animation style further.

These pictures take ages to draw anyway, so having to do multiple ones in the same animation is a quite laborious process!

I decided to put this work in progress GIF together, to see whether it would work and if I should continue with the animation and also to give myself a incomplete-complete piece(!) for getting so far with the animation.

Watch this space for the finished item! Might be a while...
