New Birthday, Baby and Thank-You Card Designs with Mr.Buttonman

It’s September! This means back-to-school for many poor souls and back to work for me! I had a lovely 2 week vacation in August, and am ready to jump into some new projects this fall. There are some exciting things coming up, but I can’t share all of them with you quite yet 🙂

What I can tell you is that I’ve finished designing 5 new Mr.Buttonman folded greeting cards. The new baby card will be available in pink, blue and/or green. As of today, they are up on my Etsy shop. Yipee! When folded, the cards are A6 size  (148 mm by 105 mm) and printed on 300g satin white paper, blank on the inside and come with a kraft paper envelope. I’ve chosen to do a print-on-demand approach this time, which means that the cards will be lovingly cut and folded by hand after each purchase. This is to reduce paper waste and help me determine which cards are the favourites before making any big orders. They are available for individual sale, but also in packs of 4 or 5, similar to last years Christmas cards.

Airborne- Illustration Friday Post

I’ve submitted one of my older illustrations for this week’s Illustration Friday Blog. The theme is ‘Airborne’.  This is still one of my favourite Mr. Buttonman illustrations. I sold the original in an art exhibition last summer, but have made a new copy for myself which is hanging in our bedroom at this very moment. ButtonmanBalloonWEB

If I imagine a story around this illustration it would be that Mr. Buttonman has decided it’s time for him to travel the world. Button balloon travel is by far the best mode of transportation for a Buttonman, and the great thing about these balloons is they never deflate. He does, on one or two occasions, end up in places he did not plan on visiting, but overall has a grand adventure. The end.

Have a happy weekend, full of blue skies and flighty thoughts 🙂
