Christmas Cards

I decided to take inspiration from the brilliant Edward Gorey for this year's Christmas card. (Here's one of his cards) He is a an absolute master of his art. His images are all magical. If you don't know about him take the trouble, you have some happy times ahead. See The Gashlycrumb Tinies and his illustrated envelopes for starters.

The drawing for my card. Done with Indian ink and a fine drawing pen.

To finish the process I scanned and flipped the image. I added colour on the computer.

This is one of my other initial thumbnails drawn up as a card for my folks.
