Shy – timide / Christmas card – Carte de Noël

Christmas Card shy lowres Shy   timide / Christmas card   Carte de NoëlWell I was late sending my Halloween cards (below) hehe so I had to be early doing my Christmas cards!! I figured the subject for this week theme on Illustration Friday was just perfect for it: Shy. I based my idea on one of the Holiday bookmark I had made for teachers last year… but gave it a twist, with this quote from Einstein (we all love him, right?) :

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.

Albert Einstein


Bon… j’étais en retard pour envoyer mes cartes d’Halloween… maintenant je pense carte de Noël un peu à l’avance… j’ai pensé que le sujet pour Illustration Friday de cette semaine: Timide, serait parfait pour cette carte. Je me suis basé sur une illustration faite pour les signets de l’an passé pour les professeurs, avec un petit “twist” différent. Et quoi de mieux qu’une citation d’Albert Einstein ? On l’aime bien ce Einstein, pas vrai?

Apprenez d’hier, vivez aujourd’hui, gardez espoir pour demain. La chose importante est de ne pas cesser de s’interroger.

Albert Einstein

    Your take on “Shy” is very sweet, but also mischievous, perhaps? I think we both took the right approach by playing two characters off each other. The mood of it makes me want to stick my tongue out and catch one of those flakes!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my site (back in november… I am so late replying to comments, I am ashamed!!!) Gabriel Garbow :) But I do read them all… I just forget to comment sometimes!!! Yes, I always like when there is an interaction between two characters… makes the illustration even more fun, right?… haaa.. I did that when I was a kid…. catch snow flakes as they fall… was actually better then eat it when it was already on the ground… with the small…. rocks and stuff?? beurk!!! hehehe :) Hope you are having a wonderful beginning of the New Year!!!
