Such a contently happy little bunny!
This was the very first card I designed when considering doing this cute little series. Originally, the bunny was going to be a 3D element to the card, but I’m beginning to like it more as a flat piece. I won’t make my decision until I’ve mocked up both options. 🙂
Only two more left to go! Let me know what you think!
The second of my Thank You card series. Still not quite happy with it, but happy enough! 🙂 Enjoy.
Once I have these mocked up, I’ll post more pictures so you can see the 3D elements– If I go with those.
Sometimes, it’s hard to like something after you’ve worked at it over and over again. Not the case this time. While I may still tweak the colors on the rabbit itself, this Thank You Card is complete. 🙂 Still have more tweaking on another one before it comes up and the following three should be coming soon, too!
I must say, however, that my favorite part of designing these cards has become the little treat I give myself at the end. Anyone who’s received one of my cards or seen them in person may know already, but I mark all of my cards one the back with my bunny and name. What’s a treat about that, you ask? It’s that every one of them is different. Yes, the bunny is the same, but once I finish an illustrated front, I like to tie it into the back in some small way. Look for it next time– It always makes me smile, too. 🙂
Stay tuned, there’s more to come!
Ready to be taken off and printed, then sent off to everyone I know. 🙂 Thank you for all your feedback and thoughts on which design to go with. If you want an announcement and don’t think I have your address, please shoot me an email to make sure I’ve got it! It’s just over a month away!
Are you ready?
I’ve never had so many projects going on at the same time before!! It’s kind of exciting, while being a little overwhelming and difficult to focus on at the same time. I’ve also taken these projects as an excuse to get back into water coloring a little bit. My work method has changed a little, not working on pieces in, well, pieces, with the intention of bringing them all together in Photoshop. I’m not yet sure how I like it, but this is where the world is heading anyway. I just have to keep as much of my favorite tradition feel as I can!
The plate is full of Thank you and Commencement cards, as well as the library cards, a personal exploration, and Character tiles. I’m loving it. 🙂
There are many times when I sit down to work on a project and am assaulted with endless streams of ideas. I decided it would be an interesting challenge to create a series of Library cards for a variety of ages. Initially, I had decided to do one card each for… Infants/parents, Toddlers (3-5 years), Children (8-12 years), Teenagers, and College students. Since then, it has gotten a little bit out of control… While I’ve decided on two images for my first two in the list, I find that deciding on one option for the “Children’s” bracket is very difficult. I’ve wandered from a a card for each gender, to a card that is cut out and looks like a dragon or unicorn, to a single image intended to bring everyone in, and back again.
While I fear I may have bitten off a bit more than I could chew, I’m excited to see where I eventually settle in the long run.
A set of six thank you cards I’m hoping to finish before the year’s through. It isn’t really a part of my Thesis, but I’m enjoying it all the same! There are corresponding letters to help in the confusion– let me know what you think!
