Drawing cards

Christmas is coming and I know I need new cards. It has been a big puzzle for me to decide what is it in Australia. It is completely different from North hemisphere and especially from Lithuanian traditions I am used to.


I still think of traditional symbols.


This is the sketch from the last year, cards I made. The most successful for me are the cards with animals on them. And, since I like drawing them, this year is for pets in elk horns. I don’t remember who reminded me of this idea, I will look it up and the person who came up with this idea should get some when they are printed 😉

Sometimes in the market people see the print, for example with dogs. And they want another one to match.
-There is one with cats. – I say.
And you should see some of the faces! Ew, cats! 😀 It is always a funny result when you offer something with cats to an ultimate dog person. Or opposite.


What is Christmas in Australia? What????!!! 🙂

Nothing serious

“Nieko rimto” which in Lithuanian means nothing serious is a wonderful publishing house in Lithuania making beautiful books and lovely stationery. And I was contacted to draw few postcards.

Here they are:

They also made some souvenirs like magnets, paper for letters.

And since then my friends and family members sent me lots of pictures of those cards in the bookshops, book fair, etc. Thanks!
