Animated Holiday Card with Company Logo

A really fun project was this animated Holday Greeting card to be sent to the customers of my commissioning client.

The briefing required a nice, hand-drawn cozy looking winter scene. We opted for an inviting winter chalet in the woods surrounded by snow covered trees and featuring the AN2V logo.

The artwork was painted on an iPad Pro M1 in Procreate 5 software and rendered as a timelapse video.
The video was converted to an animated GIF so that it could be used and viewed in e-mails directly on all devices.

The client was delighted with the final result and I was quite pleased with it also.

Artist Instagram and TikTok with lots of sketches, doodles and live drawings

It’s been a while since I updated my news blog. Things have been rather quiet on the project front due to the pandemic (like for many), so I don’t have a lot of new client work to show you, but I thought I would say a quick hello.

I recently started a TikTok channel, where I mostly post recordings of live drawings (digital and analog). So if you are on there and enjoy drawings, drop by and have a look.

I only have 120 followers here so far, so you can become a member of a highly exlusive club. 😀
