Have you ever noticed that the month of February seems to be filled with holidays?
Some are more celebrated than others. There are holidays that are more commercial, some that are obscure, and others barely noticed by anyone.
To recognize friends and family on any day is something very special. As a cardmaker, I think any and every day should be celebrated.
In no particular order.... Valentine's day! Don't you hate it when people say 'happy valentimes day'? TIMES...... where on earth did that come from? Some say it's sappy.... Hallmark holiday to make money.... yeah, so what? We need to promote more love.... there is enough hate and craziness out there. MORE LOVE!
Last week there was Chinese New Year, Mardi Gras (or Fat Tuesday), Ash Wednesday and other weird little celebrating days.... along with Lincoln's birthday, Presidents' Day etc.... and of course all the people who celebrate birthdays in February! The above is a dragon doodle, drawn by hand with pen and paper.... and then....
I uploaded it to the computer to color it in ... and add the text.
Holidays and special days are good for a graphic artist. They keep us busy creating!
Nothing poignant to my blog post today.
I'm happy that I can always find something to create... every day.
