I have now published my Greeting Card Gallery of all my designs, including my limited edition 2012 ranges ‘Fit for A Queen’ and ‘This is London Calling’. All cards are available now. Contact me if you would like to place an order. They will all be available to buy at the Brighton Spring Craftaganza and the May Artists Open Houses, as well as other Brighton outlets. See the Events page for all the details and updates.
My sketches I scanned in to make up the card design. I wanted to make the corgi the focus of the card, and make the corgi a simplified style to get more of a iconic feel rather than realistic.
I then added more sketches, traditional British colours, and material texture in the background. I also used the corgi character in the repeat pattern design below…
I wanted the design to have a retro iconic feel to it, and combine the digital colours with the sketched coloured pencil elements. These two designs are part of a series of 6 special edition Jubilee 2012 cards I am working on.
