I’ve been practicing snowmen for the past few days (for the  next holiday card). Here’s my favorite so far.

Normally I get very bothered by stray marks and imperfect registration, but with this print, I’m really feeling it instead.

A few very kind friends have asked if the most recent holiday prints are available as cards, so I set aside this afternoon for printing. What with one thing and another, I got carried away and printed quite a few extra. So, slap they went into my Etsy shop. Drop by and take a look; there will be more prints to come, like the Santa hat above.  

Not a lot of free time today. All you people are getting is this Festivus pole.

This is getting to be fun. With planning and luck, I will maintain something like this pace for a few weeks. Here, have a tree.

Should have used a third color (blue) for the sky. I’ll print a few of those somewhen.

Well, the phone’s camera isn’t so good for some things, is it? Here are the cards, in a more visually appealing presentation.

Added bonus: I laid down too much black ink, and so figured that I would just go ahead and print the giraffe plate, even though it’s not finished. I’m just glad to have that done and on the finished shelf.

No, I don’t do much two-color work. So here’s a little example of my branching out. I do enjoy that mid-1950’s illustration vibe.
