It’s hard to believe Christmas time is here and 2015 is just a few short weeks away!  This year I have pushed my work further, and have worked hard to create a unique style with a vintage feel. Over the next few months I will continue to expand my portfolio with new pieces for the SCBWI Winter Conference in February. I am very hopeful of the opportunities the new year will bring! For now, I would like to share my promotional Christmas card design that was sent out to art directors in the publishing industry.

Merry & Bright {card front}

The front of the card features a whimsical illustration of elves decorating a tree. The elves were drawn by hand then colored digitally using various brushes and textures. For the color palette, I wanted something a little more unusual than the traditional red and green. To help achieve a nostalgic feel, I chose colors from vintage Christmas ornaments.

For the back of the card, I used the same color palette and created vintage-inspired hand lettering.
