a sneak peek

December 8, 2008

Almost all of the 2008 Vayda Christmas cards have been mailed…and almost all of my other projects must be kept under wraps…so just to get the focus around here back on art, here’s a little behind the scenes look at the making of the Vayda Christmas card.  I won’t bore you with the million and two preliminary sketches that took place, but it was a true color-comp nightmare.  Color is such a science to me, and red & green…(while compliments)…are not  my favorite color combo.  Then again, I’m not a huge fan of non-traditional Christmas colors…just to keep you guessing before the big reveal…
