Look a little closer at those markings…what do you see?
For my holiday card in 1997, I was puzzling out yet another way to say “Peace on Earth”. I saw an illustration that had each hemisphere of a globe on either side of a Christmas tree ornament, and thought the idea of using the globe was clever.
Creating portraits of spotted dogs and spotted cats at the time, something in my brain put it all together for me. While I regularly create linoleum block prints, I decided to draw this one out instead of cutting it! Don’t know why…probably the time factor as I’m often behind the clock when it comes to making cards for the holidays. So it’s an ink drawing with the text added later in my graphic design program.
This 5″ x 7″ card is printed on 12 pt. gloss card stock. It includes a matching envelope in white, red or brown kraft; if you don’t choose one I’ll ship them with white envelopes. It’s all packed in a clear-top white cardboard greeting card box
