One of the most challenging illustrations i’ve taken on wasn’t too complex at all - it was a simple portrait of my family. However, knowing every inch of my face, every expression in my husband’s eyes, and every hair on my dog’s head made illustrating our 2017 Christmas Card a tough feat to accomplish.
I often found myself stuck in a rut, trying to perfect every detail, but then I remembered, I’m the only one who knows those details. Most of our loved ones are just glad to receive a fun card from us. I found the most success by going with my gut and doodling our faces.
In 2018, I shaved my head, so I took the opportunity to update my portrait.
