Very excited!

Two exciting things have happened this week! XD (And no, I'm not talking about my two days off, because it'll actually be three days come tomorrow.)

Thing one: I have been sent awesome giftart!
Trice Trice by Anna Ghislaine (garedeuropa/Website)
I love the whole painterly style to this, and the way it's all glowwy; I've always enjoyed her bright, almost surrealist cartoony style, and of course predilection for monsters and weird creatures. (Original link)

Thing two: Guess what I found on my doormat when I got home yesterday!

MM Delivery! An exciting parcel! I'd checked my "post-slot" on my way into the building, and there was nothing in there except the usual junkmail/tut, so it was a very nice surprise to come through onto my floor and find the package leaning against my front door. :D   MM First Draft Inside the parcel... was my book! A5 size, and about an inch thick, with a nice glossy cover and good quality pages. I'm not sure if I should be surprised how thick it is, because my page count on my PDF ran to 370-ish words.

...it's going to take a lot of editing. *dead*

All right, there were actually two copies inside - one for me, for my bookcase, and one because colleagues at work had asked if they could read it. Copy 2 is already out in the wild. XD

Lastly: Christmas Cards!
I have been rubbish at getting them ready on time for the last two years, so I've started creating them already for this year. Show of hands - anyone want one?

    A quick "mockup", I suppose, for how this little fellow will ultimately come together. I had to take a copy of the original and then cut it up and…

  • "Sunburst" / phoenix mandala

    Just a quick and dirty little mockup in Paint, to see if it looks how I want before I commit to recreating it in real life. (I'm going to stitch it,…

  • "Peafins"

    I revised my "peafin" (yes, peacock-griffin)! I didn't like the way that the anatomy had ended up so strangely "cropped" - at the time, I didn't…
