The semester has come to a close, the presents have all been opened up, and now we're in the post-holiday coma that comes after all of that! We're very tired. Sleeping at normal hours has been wrecked totally. The house is still kind of a disaster. But that's okay! Still a week and a half of vacation, thank goodness.
We've done a holiday card for the past few years, but this year totally ran out of time to do it before the, um, actual holidays. So, we made it a winter card instead. Behold!
We approached it differently this year; still as a collaboration. Durwin was inspired by the Illustration Friday things that I've been doing, especially the time limit aspect (I try to limit them to under 2 hours, or two episodes of "Buffy: The Vampire Slayer") so, the basic cardinal shape was created, then we both took one, put on some episodes of This American Life, and then went to town. They sort of reflect us; his is the very classy, pared down timeless design, and I'm the funky chicken showing off all her colours.
It works for us!
