I’m Almost Done Carving

They’re later than usual, but it’s still the holiday season!

The design is strange for me.  Usually I do more decorative than illustrative.  I’m sticking with the the Correspondence Card format (larger, non folded), but this time I’m hoping translucent vellum holds the ink just as well as the traditional Rives BFK.  Also- laser cut edges vs. my usual torn edges- I better not get any paper cuts!

I hope the black envelopes read “Gorey” and not too gothic.  As much as I enjoy his twisted sense of humor, it wasn’t exactly the tone I was going for.  I’m going for “love and joy”, and heartwarming winter rituals of the secular variety.

And remember- if you feed birds this year, next year that flock might change its migratory route to include your house as a pit stop.  *The More You Know
