With some delay, I finally can present you a new website design, a new Christmas card design and even give you as a early Christmas present a coloring freebie! At the beginning of the month I was close to have a nervous breakdown. I came back from my semester abroad in Iceland, looking forward to having finally a computer. I wanted to design some Christmas cards and finish the website design. Guess what: I came back and my computer only worked for 15 minutes. I had to get a new one and that took a while. Therefore, my website wasn’t done until a week ago, same with the Christmas card.
Bruce the Moose
Bruce the Moose is a moose drawing I did about a month ago, still in Iceland. Of course, a moose would have been to normal and therefore the moose is wearing a red pullover with snowflakes on it. I used Prisma Color pencils but also Faber Castell Pitt Artist pens and a white Uniball highlighter. I chose to draw on A4 (21×29.7 cm). Bruce the Moose was named by my roommate.
For the Christmas card I added holiday lights around the antlers. To make it look even more festive I chose a christmasy green background. The motive is printed on a A6 postcard and is available on Etsy!
Coloring Freebie for Christmas
Johanna Fritz, a German illustrator, started a blogparade under the hashtag #xmasillublogparade and you should check out her website and the results of the other participants. The task of the blogparade was to either create a Christmas card or a gift tag freebie for the readers. Or both.
I wanted to do coloring freebie anyway, as every year. Since so many people liked Bruce the Moose, I thought he would be a good coloring freebie. I outlined Bruce the Moose and added the Merry Christmoose as on the postcard. Maybe some of you didn’t get a card for Christmas yet? This freebie would be perfect for it and especially for children it might be a lot of fun. Download the file with the button below and get you pencils ready for coloring!
