My latest book Blue Penguin is coming out pretty soon. In fact I already have a first copy of the book at home. The book was in front of me when I received an email asking me to design a Christmas card. I didn’t need to think too long before I made up my mind about what I would do.
I thought Blue Penguin would make a good card.Here is Blue Penguin taking off.Similar, but perhaps a more festive launching of Blue Penguin.Then I thought about a picture with Blue Penguin and the winter sun coming through a snowy sky.And one more. This time with a Christmas star.Or perhaps this one,…or this one.When I start sketching ideas sometimes I don’t know when to stop.
So I didn’t stop.I think this picture made it to the final. I’m happy with the choice.This illustration was one of the least successful. I liked the house in the picture so I did a picture of the house by itself.Here are some other houses from my little sketchbook.Upside down house.
And one more. It looks a bit like a gingerbread house, don’t you think?
