Crimbeaux cards 2008 by Duffzilla Crimbeaux cards 2008 by Duffzilla
Christmas cards for people I know and enjoy. Some of the photos aren't great but a couple of these were painted minutes before giving them so I had to hurry :D

Gouache on paper.

How neat!  They're full of character and the sepia tones definitely encourage that vintage sort of feel!

Hihi! I'm in the middle!
You can't imagine how happy I got when I came home one day and there was this pretty little envelope from good ol' Ire-yeah!
Thanks a million! And for the other one also. They're both on the altar of Ciaran now, next to my keyboard ... I love them! I love them all!
Also!
I've been bad at answering them those there emails you've sent me recently ... let's improve that on my part.

It pleasures me to know there is an altar to me in Seweden. Up to now I've been praised as a god only in Borneo and parts of another country whose name escapes me. It's a long country between Norwayy and Finnlandd.

Awesomeness all around. I love the guy on the bike and the guy in the lower left corner. But, I also live the guy with the weight and the woman playing tennis. Poor thing, like she could move in that thing.

I love those old photos of women playing tennis in kilos of clothes. I'd love to see film of it.
Women had it tough, then.

Now they can wear much much less and we're all a lot happier for it.

It was the Golden Age of facial hair, I won't hear argument on that.

I love your gouache stuff! It has a really nice 'handmade' quality to it (well, obviously) that digital just can't do from my experience.
