Christmas Cards Available

(Other merchandise also.)

This is the time of year to think about buying Christmas cards.  I have several designs available at my Zazzle store.  (Lately they’ve been running some 60% off sales on holiday cards, which makes them a reasonable price.  Just look for the coupon code.  Today’s is HOLIDAYZSAVE, but that only lasts until midnight tonight.  Black Friday’s coming up, though, so they’re bound to have more good discounts soon.  The code BLKFRIDAYZAZ will get you 60% off until the end of the day 11/25/18.)  The code ZCYBRMONDAYZ will get you up to 75% off on some projects.  I think it’s 60% on cards.  Until the end of the day Cyber Monday.  And I have a coupon code for 60% off cards, among other things. Good until midnight on Monday, Dec 3rd. Use ZCYBRMONDAY2 at checkout.  Use DECKTHEHALLS at checkout for 60% off cards until midnight on Friday, Dec 7th.


My latest is the Christmassy Streetcar that my Dad requested.

Last year’s card was my family ice skating.  Sorry it’s not a more universal image.  It’s very specifically my family, complete with Katie in her Canadian flag hoodie.  I have considered reworking it with polar bears or something skating instead, but I haven’t gotten around to it.

Before that was a snowman family.  (Also available in portrait orientation and on other merchandise.)

A single snowman with a cardinal perched on it’s hand/branch.  (Also available in portrait orientation and on other merchandise.  It’s particularly pretty on a coffee mug.)

And, for the more new age among you, a Stonehenge winter solstice card.

There are also tons of other products up on my Zazzle store.  Mostly prints and cards, but other merchandise as well.  More-or-less any decent images that I still hold the copyright on are fair game for Zazzle printing.  If there’s any of my work that you’d like to see printed on something and I don’t already have it up, just let me know.  I’d be happy to set it up for you.

I’ve illustrated two books that are available also.  They’d make good Christmas gifts.

(Preview images were generated by Zazzle.  They own the greeting card templates, I own the images pictured on the cards.)

Selling Stuff

Will Draw for Money 150 hI’d like to mention, because I haven’t lately, that I do sell prints and print rights to most of my work.

zazzle shop 200I sell custom-printed merchandise and prints through Zazzle. I just finished a large update, so that’s up-to-date now. I only bothered with posters for most of the latest stuff, but if you’d like to see any of my work on a mug or a T-shirt or anything else Zazzle offers, just let me know and I’ll be happy to set it up for you.

istock iconI also sell limited, non-exclusive print rights for most of my images through iStock.

Dolores UmbridgeBree NewsomeThere are a few pieces I have which Zazzle and iStock won’t allow for various reasons. Like my Harry Potter illustration or my Bree Newsome tribute. If you’d like prints of one of those, or if you’d like to purchase anything directly from me, feel free to contact me and we can arrange that.
Print
The third edition of my book, The Squishy, Stinky Diaper, is available through Amazon. Both in print and for the kindle. If you purchase a paperback, be sure it’s the third edition. The old one’s out of print now, but it’s still around. The illustrations are much better in the new one. Also, I don’t get any royalties on used book sales.

Also, as usual, I am accepting commissions and I’d love to work with you on your next project! smiley 15

Third Edition up on Amazon

Print
The new edition of The Squishy, Stinky Diaper is up on Amazon now.  It’s available in print and for the kindle and features all new illustrations.  I’m really proud of how it turned out.

Summary:
The story is familiar to every toddler. Baby’s diaper must be changed, but she doesn’t want to cooperate. With patience, love, and good humor, Mommy gets her through it.

I’m working on getting it up for the nook too, but their interface is being difficult.  It’s not on Barnes & Noble in print yet either, but it should be eventually.

In the meantime, if you want a PDF or epub copy for your non-kindle eReader, contact me and I’ll sell it to you directly.

Last one!  YAY!!!

It’s still not quite done, of course.  I have to go back and edit it for consistency.  For example, I noticed that I didn’t do her nose the same way on every page, the line of the side of her face in 3/4 view isn’t consistent, and I don’t like how I drew her leg on page 18 and 19.  Things like that.  But it’s almost done.  smiley 15

Squishy, Stinky Pages

I’ve been kind of quiet on here because I’ve been working on finishing this Squishy, Stinky Diaper project.  Here are 5 recent spreads.  They differ from the original dummy mainly by the additional sound effects, smooth lines, and color.
