What's all this, then?

Since I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to do with this blog right now, I've decided to post some of the strange doodles and drawings I've kept in boxes, folders, and cabinets these past 30 years. A lot of these things were done while on the phone, or while testing pens, or out of sheer boredom. There won't be any rhyme or reason to these drawings. I'm just grabbing stuff from off the piles, scanning it, and adding it here. Think of it as a game of cartoon Russian roulette. The neat thing about the drawings is that each one has it's own history and background story. There will be plenty of bonus posts and topical additions as the mood strikes. Forewarned is forearmed.

My Department Christmas Card 2008

Every year I make a batch of custom Christmas/Holiday cards for my coworkers.
Since I work with an editorial staff, I used that fact as the theme.

The outside

The inside

I make the original drawings, scan 'em and lay 'em out in CorelDRAW.
I print them out on a laser printer and then hand color each.
If you want a PDF of the card, click the link below.
I'll post my annual card for the Geeks over at CGS a bit closer to Christmas.
Stay tuned!
(Pen and ink on smooth Bristol, scanned in Photoshop, edited in CorelDRAW, printed on buff card stock and hand-colored with markers)
