Another Old Card

I did this in 2006 and it was inspired by children's book illustrations I really like. The concept is to have Jack Frost writing on a window. ( "Seasons Greetings" was added in a frosted lettering style by computer for our card.) The trees etc as seen through the frosted glass are pretty abstract but I like the way it came out. When I first did this I had his doublet all blue, but I had in the back of my mind the idea of having snow flakes on it. I scanned the picture with the doublet as all blue and then added the snow flakes and scanned it again. I definitely prefer the one with the snow flakes so that is what we used. "Little Jack Frost", roughly 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, Acrylic, watercolor colored pencil and Pro White on illustration board.


  1. such a wonderfully childish picture. ^^ so addorable. ^^

  2. It reminds me of that one David Bowie movie... The Man Who Fell to Earth.

  3. really??How does it remind you of "The man Who Fell to Earth"?
