Card Designs

Nearly two years ago now I produced a couple of marker pen sketches after a visit to friends in Totnes which were going to be considered as postcards. Well this week I’ve had to dig out the originals as theres a strong possibility that printing will take place this summer with a sample run being sold in the town’s bookshop.

Its nice to look back at old drawings and see how my styles changed over time, I guess thats a result of practice and confidence. Its something I don’t do enough of and I’m now inspired to have a nosey round a few older sketchbooks.

They are very nearly there and regular readers will probably remember the orignal image from a previous project. Unfortunately I lost that one due to chopping and changing computers and this is why I had to start from scratch again with them.

Card Illustrations
