Christmas cards and other cards

Christmas cards for etsy! they're a little different, i think this may be the first illustration i've posted with digital coloring. i'm not a good digital artist by any means, but i'm pleased with it for this, i think the solid colors suit the kind of naive and playful feeling. (also much faster, plus plus!) i'm so excited for christmas, it is my very favorite.

i've got a few other new things on my etsy too which i haven't posted here, some greeting cards and prints and more original paintings...


now to get started on secret gift paintings ;3

RAM square

one of my squares for the RAM Art Gallery. If you're in Jacksonville, come to the Arts Market and see, there are lots of good squares! (David did one too - you can see his here :3)

acrylics this time, and on a really textured surface, it's been a at least a year or two since i've used acrylics. i'm pleased, though!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: The Silver Doe

my very favorite scene in deathly hallows, maybe even in all the books. between 's reread and discussion posts, visiting wizarding world in august, and the movie coming so soon, i only recently have calmed down from a big HP brain-takeover (and it's not over yet! glad to have gotten this done before part one). this is the first real fanart i've done since back when i was a middle-schooler obsessed with sailormoon... that is something!  

i think this got it out of my system a little, which will hopefully last for the next week and a half leading up to the movie, because i have no time to be thinking about anything other than art. i have so many projects to work on... still in the midst of commission work, but i also have a couple of small canvases to think of ideas for and complete for the arts market's newish gallery area (hopefully at least one by this saturday augh), and i need to finalize some ideas for holiday-themed illustrations (hopefully completed sometime this month, i want to add new items to etsy!)... november is going to be so busy, and then most of december will probably be devoted to gift paintings and things like that. ahh! but i like it.

Harry Potter, etc etc belongs to J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros., etc etc
