Ready for a tripe axel of fun? Here's my city skate illustration I did years ago.
It's still very merry! I always love the outdoor skating areas you find in most cities.
When I worked in Manhattan at the end of the day I'd often wander over to the Rink at Rockefeller Center. I'd buy a fancy hot cocoa & slowly sip while I watched people skate by. It always felt special and festive.

I made a cut paper Gingerbread Village using oodles of masking fluid instead of icing. The view from above is always so pretty so I added some mountains to ski down.
The top image is this piece before I rolled off the mask & added all the details.
(which was done digital listening to Christmasy carols & signing along)

Made a gingerbread village using oodles of masking fluid & watercolor. The raw state of this turned out nicely. I decided to add some mountains to ski down! (they're so darn pretty & majestic)
Here's a snippet of the finished piece. A little digital magic for all the delicate line work details.
Which reminds me I haven't decorated a gingerbread house yet this season.

This year I made a homemade Christmas countdown. In the past I've pulled out
calendars I designed for kids companies like Land of Nod or PB Kids.
This year with my son now 11 the kiddie stuff while fun didn't
quite fit the vibe. So, I got out the acrylic paints, managed to limit my color,
(hooray- that's hard for me) & collaged on some numbers from an old game sheet. I like bright color & simple patterns so, I was happy with the outcome.
Definitely fits my merry & bright holiday vibe. Until later this month when I usually I have a pre-Christmas melt down. Do the holidays give anyone else a slow crescendo to crazy?
This year is another chance to work on it- while I count it down. :)
