Get you holiday cards here

I made three Christmas cards and you can get them from me 1 for $3 or 2 for $5.Supplies are limited. Direct message me on Twitter at @qqh_designs or email me at laura@quackquackhonk.com. 

  
The insides are blank so you can wish people Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Merry Moosemas, Happy festimus for the rest of us, or whatever your greeting of choice is. Envelopes included. 

These three are also available in prints, bookmarks, and a few may be available in originals. All prints are matted to standard 8×10 frame size. 

Turkish Cheetah #coffee #anthropomorphic  

I have a dear friend that I work with at conventions and evrrytime I see him he whips up the best Turkish coffee (okay, truth I’ve never had it anywhere else). Gabe even whips up no sugar versions for me now that I’m working hard on (I don’t want to say losing weight cause it’s not about thin and all about not dying) being healthier. 

So, I’m kind of on a coffee kick lately and I wanted to highlight the coffee that we in the ops office like so much. 

  
Why a cheetah? You might ask. There is usually a reason for the pairing. Cheetahs run fast (that should be a duh moment) and we drink coffee for the caffeine so we’ll hopefully reach a speed that resembles human instead of zombie. On top of that there used to be cheetahs in Turkey according to the Internet and when possible I try to put links in like that. 

Hint hint – I also happen to know there’s at least one cheetah out there that like coffee. So, bonus. 

Two lovebirds that love dessert #dessertimals #lovebirds #shake @copicmarker 

This is my latest in the dessertimals series. I hope you enjoy these lovebirds sharing a shake (the most romantic of desserts). 

  
As you see the straws and the birds mimic each other and are on opposite sides to bring the colors across the piece. On top of that the straws are positioned to be reminiscent of a heart without being in your face. 

I used copic markers and liners on Bristol Vellum 500 series paper. 

Cause holidays

So many people ask me over and over “why do you talk about the holidays months out?” It’s simple really, if I’m on time for the holiday I’m late. No ones buying halloween stuff to be delivered within a week the day before Halloween. It’s really that simple. So, on that note. Here is a super cute grey mouse inside a very surprised Jack-o-lantern called he’s more afraid of you. 

  
Challenge one was figuring out how to show the segments of the Jack-o-lantern without outlining the entire thing (trust me that looked crappy)

Challenge two was I apparently don’t own a lot of shades of orange. Just 5 which sounds like a lot but isn’t. So supplement warm grey in cause Orange is a warm color (usually). That and the mouse had to be a different shade of grey. He’s cool grey. 

This was done with Copic marker and liner.
