Of course, it took me a long time to finish my stippling version of my sister's puppy, so the card was late. However, I enjoyed creating it because I find the stippling process very relaxing. While the finished version is above, below you'll see the inside, the original picture.
Update-- Summer 2018
I've been trying hard to continue this act of making cards for people instead of buying them. Below is a couple Mother's Day cards (and the inside of one), another birthday card, and a thank you stippling of a bed and breakfast's dog Carson.
Update-- End of 2018
The journey continues. I made another birthday card for my sister and my mother. Plus, a few Christmas cards for family and a friend. The Christmas ones felt a bit rushed, but it really feels good at the time of creating the work. All that business about it being the process and not the end product? Oh, right. I get that now.
Update-- Feb 2019
Somewhere during this adventure I found myself creating a silly logo and name for my homemade cards. I love a good pun, but others are not big fans. So Punwurst Affiche became the identity of my creations. Why I felt the need to brand them is probably a good topic to take up with my psychiatrist. Regardless, I went even further after drawing the logo on three or four cards. I had some stickers made by a local company.
I created some cards for friends who took time to be on the Film Frown podcast. Plus, a little Valentine.
