After mainly working on commercial graphic design projects for the last couple of weeks it was nice to sit down yesterday and begin my promotional Christmas card. Nothing too fancy, just a street scene featuring a few characters and hopefully a clever fold in the card to make it feel a little luxurious! I collected my reference and sat down to draw a couple of the characters and... well kept drawing! I don't know if I'll use them all, but it was pretty good therapy after the last couple of busy weeks.
Here's a few of the full set of drawings in all their un-retouched glory. This is the starting point for all my images, a simple line drawing in ink on paper.
