Each year I put together a CD of some my favorite songs of the year for my siblings.
Here is the CD cover I illustrated for this year’s “Songs for the Box”
I made this for a crew print and a t-shirt design for the cloth and hair crew on Hotel Transylvania.
We are wrapping up the last remaining cloth and hair tasks for Hotel Transylvania. A few months back when we hit our 50 percent complete mark, I made buttons for the cloth and hair crew with this illustration on the buttons.
Here are some quick sketches from the Long beach Aquarium. I never had tool long to sit in one place with the kids wanted to move on to the next thing, but it was a great time. God sure has made some beautiful things under the sea. I can’t to go back. I am particularly proud of my Spider Crab. i spent some extra time on that one. The sketch of Mira worked out well too.
I’ve been interested in the season of Christmas as the period between the 25th and Epiphany, otherwise known as the 12 days of Christmas. Although I did not know much more than the well known song, there are quite a lot ways the twelve days of Christmas are celebrated throughout the world.
The 26th is known as St. Stephen’s Day. The three stones represent the stoning and martyrdom of St. Stephen. The day is also known as Wren Day. The Wren and the drum represent Wren Day. The 26th is also Boxing day. Traditionally on Boxing day the noble class give gifts to the servant class. Also the church would traditionally open their collection boxes to the poor on Boxing day. The gift box in the picture represents Boxing day.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Every year I make a mix CD for my siblings. It started from a “Box Set” of CDs I made them when they got their first car.
I call it “Songs for the Box”
I drew this Yukon Cornelius as the “cover art” for the CD.
