I know, I know, it's a little early! I was just trying to put together a possible promo holiday card to send out.
This is based off of a rejected sketch for another project - I liked the little character idea so I thought I'd run with it as an excuse and opportunity to play more with pattern, texture, and combining dimension and flatness. Because of the subject matter, I also researched some Scandinavian decorative art - super inspiring!
I've been doing a lot of experimenting over the past few months, as I've started to feel a little bit pigeonholed into one approach and it's getting tiresome. Finally, I'm starting to feel like all of this experimentation is starting to come together into a clear voice that feels natural. Very exciting!
