Wishing you a Happy Christmas.
I created this design as an online and offline greeting. A still illustration with photographic and digital art, and also a gif with flashing fairy lights.
The design swops Santa’s sleigh for a sports car based on my favourite car design. I originally made the car in cut paper for this ‘Going to the Seaside’ Paperart piece.
Santa is joined by a little white dog, who is enjoying the ride, and a small festive robin.
The little white dog features in that artwork and those who’ve been following my work will know is the character Sam, who I’ve also painted for the Children’s book – The Dog Who Wanted To Fly
I chad created the Santa for commercial Christmas illustration I was also working on…
Using the design I created a limited print run of just 10 Christmas cards. Then my printer stopped working.
I added sparkly details with gel glitter pens and sent the fleet of greetings to family and close friends.
I next went on to bake this design in Gingerbread. See this story here…
Once created I felt that the robin on the picture needed to ice skate. So I added skates and made an animated gif. A little winter sport fun for my favourite festive bird.
Wishing everyone a Happy Christmas. Thank you so much for the support and to everyone who has read, Liked and Shared my work. It means so much.
