Christmas Past

Finally finished this year's card and am mailing them out AFTER the fact... ah well...
Christmas is past now, the decorations away and the lighted tree waiting for the New Year confetti and streamers... always leaves me a bit melancoly.
I've enjoyed a wonderful year both in my personal life and professional, and look forward with great hope for an even better year to come!

Always Learning

I'm having too much fun working in Photoshop! Afraid I'm still a traditionalist in most respects, and still love to draw-scan the line work in, but what fun to experiment with all the different options.
Such as the two samples below:

So very different, at just the touch of a button!
And there's no getting around the ease at which you can change your mind! I LOVE it!!

Libby's Birthday Invitation

Designed my darling grand daughter's party invitation after one they saw somewhere.  After re-reading the instructions sent, I realized she'd wanted a "Knight" saving her. Bother!
She must have forgotten, luckily, as was very pleased with this one.
(I've smudged out their contact info of course.)

IF "Eye Glasses"

Another version of the same. Just practicing a bit more in Photoshop. 
I like this sketchy style as well.

IF "Yesterday"

It seems like just yesterday that he was a wee laddie.
And I'm remembering the Beatles, and my best friend Cheryl D singing it as a duet when we were about thirteen. Ah the memories...

IF "Wool"

Wee Malcom loved to nap on his wooly.
(A quick doodle for Illustration Friday, just under the wire really.)
