Yes I'm one of those people who will staunchly not put up anything Christmas in my house until AFTER Thanksgiving and all of my Halloween decorations are still up, but I had to share these holiday beauties. Two of my covers were picked for the holiday flyer books this year!! It's really odd when you work on a marketing schedule I've been in Christmas mode all summer and now we're working on spring design concepts just in time to celebrate the real thing. It messes with the mind :) My Blick "paint blob" concept was based on an image I saw of cookies and the hand drawn red letter cover was based on an idea from a wine ad. What did I learn? Hand lettering is worth learning, I have the natural handwriting style of ransom note so any tips to improve are welcome. I highly recommend Copic markers, but Blick Brush Markers are an affordable substitute. What new skill did you learn this year?
