New Releases: O Holy Night, & Christmas at the Beach

O Holy Night…

I prefer to play it safe when it comes to the holidays. I try to stick to secular stuff. It’s what I enjoy the most and I don’t want to misconstrue a religious message. Images are a form of communication. Drawing something incorrectly or adding a symbol that doesn’t belong (or omitting one that does) can quickly offend. But since I had requests for a Hanukkah digi, I thought perhaps this would be a good year to wade into these waters of deeply held faith and contribute to the two major religions that have holidays this season of which I am aware. Hopefully I have not offended anyone.

I really love how this came out. I think I will spend a lot more time in 2017 working on drawing men. I am actually pretty happy with the drawing of Joseph but my brown marker was a bit too liquidy when I was doing his eyes and it turned into a mess. I’m just glad I managed to salvage it. This took me quite some time to finish *phew*

Christmas at the Beach

I also had a suggestion for some summer themed Christmas images since my friends down under are celebrating during the warm months of summer. So I came up with Destiny Christmas at the Beach. Do my friends down under go to the beach on Christmas?? I think I would. But this image would also be great a Christmas vacation at the ocean 🙂

In other news…

 I was hoping to get a coloring book together for a Halloween release but after a 9mm kidney stone put me on my bottom for a week, I am too far behind for a Halloween release. So instead let’s call it a Christmas release – though it is NOT in a Christmas theme. =) That is it for me today. I am wiped out and I still have lots of drawing to do!
Thank you so much for visiting!

Have a Wicked Weekend!!

    Lovely digis! So sorry to hear about your stone. I just came home two days ago after my 3rd surgery for a 1.9cm stone that was very stubborn. I can so sympathize! It is amazing you get so much done! I am excited to get upright and get started on my Christmas cards! Keep up the beautiful work!
