MERRY CHRISTMAS from Rudolph and his pals!
No matter how busy I am (and December is always busy for me!) I can’t refuse a good drawing challenge. I rested a bit after Inktober and now I’m making a new Christmas/winter drawing each day with the unbridled enthusiasm of an Xmas outsider (mostly Jewish family, mostly Christian friends growing up).
So if you’re not following me on Twitter yet, check back here for new drawings & sketches. They will probably get more and more frenzied before the big day!
**Update 12/26** #illo_advent is over, and now I have a lot of new greeting card designs to develop for next year’s holidays!
I’ve wanted to illustrate The Snow Queen for years, so I’ve been working on some concept sketches that grasp the overall look and feel I’ve held inside my head for so long.
This scene is from the end of the story, when Gerda reaches the Snow Queen’s castle and finds Kai playing with pieces of ice on a frozen lake.
