More Hand Sketched Cards
April 18, 2009

Last week, I decided to send out a slew of little cards to some folks I know - just a hey, how are you - kinda deal. Of course, I couldn't leave well enough alone and decided to add a more personal touch (and also because I'm bad with such small talk) - I thought I'd sketch something on the front of the cards. It's a great idea and it was fun. But I am still so critical of the doodles I create out of my own head, this turned into a much longer process than it should have been. To help simplify matters and to speed things up, I decided I would use one character that I doodled during a meeting and change what he was holding for each card - the object being held would somehow reflect the character of the person to whom I was writing the card.

One musician, a couple of sports fanatics, and a rather sweet couple. Here's the results on some blank cards in one of my favourite colours - bright spring green:

Character holding flowers, football

 

Character holding basketball, cowbell - More Cowbell text
