As I suspect may be the case with many of you, I have been trying to climb out of the holiday doldrums. Happened last year at this time, too. And it’s not like I have nothing to post. I did all of those secret santa things that I couldn’t post because they were secret. So I am posting my favorites!
This is my favorite of all the Calavera/Day of the Dead girls I’ve done (which granted is only about a dozen, and all Art Card size.) I wanted to post it as soon as it was done, but it was a secret!
This is my favorite of the (slightly) larger art I did for secret santa. It was tricky picking the colors because the mustard tone of the paper changed everything. In the end I think the detail on the chameleon’s face might overpower the lemur a bit, but I was very satisfied with the finished composition and color scheme.
And finally, three more ATCs I thought were pretty neat:
Progress pics for some of these below. Thanks so much for visiting my first post of 2013! I hope we all have a very peaceful and art-filled new year!
Love lady lemur…. a pure delight….enjoy your blog so much.
very cool, all of it, you never disappoint :D
Happy New Year, Cindy! There’s some really great stuff here :) Although I love your Day of the Dead girls, I think my favourites are still your beasties – the lemur and chameleon are awesome (that’s one lucky Secret Santa recipient)! I hope you had a fab festive holiday, and that 2013 will be filled with loads of cool and exciting stuff for you!! :D xx
Super awesome Santa presents! I love the Calavera girl. Why Jillian? If we both participate in Summer Solstice, I’ll cross my fingers for you, lol :)
The eye in that top one is piercing, Cindy. Good job on that second one on toned paper. Very whimsical on that second one!
Happy New Year. I know how you feel about the post holiday doldrums. Today I had to deal with a faulty ceiling light in the studio. Hard to get motivated with distractions in and out of the house.
I like the lemur and chameleon. They look very festive.
Love the Jillian Calavera! She is so mesmerizing!!!
