holiday postcard – season’s tweetings!

holiday postcard design - season's tweetings

I’m trying to think ahead this year, so I’ve been brainstorming holiday-oriented designs. This clever little birdy amused me, so I think you’ll see this offered in the shop soon as a postcard design!

And yes, I know I’m very late with November’s desktop wallpaper. I’ve been so busy with custom work (more on that soon) I haven’t had as many opportunities to focus on my own things. November is hardly an inspiring month in this neck of the woods in any case–so bleak and gray. But I’m sure I can come up with something involving Thanksgiving turkey. Mmm, turkey.

I mentioned in a recent post that my daughter, Elspeth, loves school buses (or as she calls them, “cool buses”) so I decided to doodle this simple school bus graphic for her. You’ll soon find it available as a square print in the Calobee Doodles shop!

illustration friday: transportation

I’m cheating and using an existing design for this week’s Illustration Friday theme, transportation. This personalized kids’ banner I designed a while back came to mind immediately. On a personal note, my daughter has a sudden fascination with the “cool bus” (school bus), to the point where I may need to print one of these posters with her name for her birthday!

I recently finished this sweet custom couple’s portrait for a client. Aren’t these two cute? Illustrating this reminded me why I love working on portraits. As much as I enjoy the business-y, promotional side of design, it’s nice to do something more personal once in a while.
