Much has happened since my last post! I was able to take a week at the beginning of November to visit a college apartment-mate of mine in Hawaii. It was mind-blowingly beautiful, and I can’t wait until I get to go back someday! After arriving back in cold and rainy Ohio, I put together some Christmasy designs for a holiday craft fair. I printed Christmas cards, a few 8 x 10 prints, and some Santa magnets and pins.
The fair is this Saturday, so I am getting pretty excited! I’m splitting a booth with a friend of mine who does vinyl designs on t-shirts and such. It should be a good time whether or not we sell much, but I’m really hoping to do well. I’ve never made stock for something like this before, and I came to realize how much it costs just to prepare! I’m hoping to recoup most of it Saturday.
I also finished the horse portrait for my mom! I just got the print today, and I’m in love with it. The print quality is wonderful. I used gicleetoday.com and would be happy to recommend them to anyone looking for high-quality art prints!
Between the Christmas card designs, the horse portrait, and the label designs for a graphic design client of mine, I haven’t had much time to make art just for me. I was happy to crank out this Christmas piece of my chicken characters I have been trying to develop.
I have another commissioned portrait on the horizon, but I will be trying to get some more development of these two in the meantime. I hope to have a positive report on the craft fair next time I post, which should be in the next couple weeks as opposed to after the new year!
