I do most of my drawing on the computer but I also keep a pile of blank greeting cards handy for when I need a change of pace. It’s fun to doodle on the cards, and if I like how they turn out I will often send one to a friend, a client, or a potential future client.
Here’s a couple of cards I did recently:
This one was for a friend’s birthday, loosely based on a photo from Humans of New York (which is a great site for finding people to sketch).
This one was for another friend who recently suffered a stroke that left him with some permanent handicaps. My thought was, it must be frustrating when our bodies don’t work the way we want them to. Fortunately he is doing well and in good spirits.
