This summer I had the opportunity to create a gift card for Meijer, which is a store in the Midwest. It's a store that I love, and I miss, now that I live very far away from one. It was kind of crazy making such a cozy holiday illustration in the heat of July, but that's the way the world works. They did a beautiful job printing it, and to keep the look of the painting, the card is printed with a matte coating. Here's the sketch, the final and the card!!
Warmest Wishes for your Holiday Season. I hope you find the time to cherish the day, be with people that lift you up, and find some magic in ordinary places.
