Holiday Card 2010


For this year’s Christmas card, I ended up painting a sketchbook-style collage. The challenge was to let go of the idea that I should somehow whip out a masterpiece holiday illustration and instead try to simply have fun drawing images that surround me in my daily life.



For the sentiment inside, I used a jolly handwritten typeface created by Font Diner and lettering artist Crystal Kluge, called Mountains of Christmas (love this name!). What’s more, they graciously made it available from Google for free! Yes, some free fonts are awesome.

  6. So happy you guys liked it! I struggled so much with the card this year until I finally said at the last moment, f*** this, at the very least I know I can draw what’s in front of me, so that’s what I am going to do.
