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.

Illustration Friday: Noise

Well, it’s been about a month since my last personal blog. I must say, I was quite shocked at the increase in views, but also very encouraged by all the thoughtful comments. Thank you!

This past month was a bit crazy, with moving to a new flat and sorting out all the details for that. Thus, I haven’t had as much time as I wanted to devote to illustration. However, I’ve done what I can and have been steadily working on sketches for the Mr.Buttonman picture book.

With all of this sketching, I’ve been itching to bring at least one work to completion. So this week, I decided to do an illustration for the Illustration Friday blog, just for fun. Though I noticed today, that I actually missed the deadline to post it on their blog. I’ll have to be quicker next time! I hope at least you will enjoy it!

The theme for this week was Noise. And here’s Mr.Buttonman being very noisy in the kitchen.

I was quite pleased with how this turned out. It’s one of the first times I’ve put Mr.Buttonman in such a detailed background. There will be more detailed backgrounds in the picture book so this illustration was a good testing ground.

Have a great Friday and make some noise!
