This will be my last update before heading out on Christmas break. :) I've had a few things in the works the past couple of days, so I thought I would share. First off, I sold a couple of pieces in the Alumni / Faculty Auction. While I'm very excited about it, I feel a little disappointed that the Academy doesn't allow artists to at least send their patrons a simple thank you. I also have no idea where those pieces ended up, so if I wanted to do a retrospective (years from now, of course) and include them, I can't. Hopefully, the school left my business cards alone so the people who bought my work can stay in touch with my career, and the worth of the work if they choose. :P Anyways.. I've been working away at this for the past week. It won't be done before Christmas, and there's a ton of glitches in it. I'm wondering if I should redo it in a smaller size (it's 16x20".. big enough for the perspective to be really weird). I'll have to ponder over it some more. The final version of the cards turned out nicely though, I'm really happy. :D I delivered a whole bunch around the neighborhood today, and I'm finishing up the ones for you guys tonight. I chose to do simple contour drawings of birds to suit the theme of the card (and the series). They'll be in the mail right before we leave town. Hope you like them. I think it would be a fun thing to do again during the year, just for kicks.
