These are sketches for holiday cards for the Children’s Illustration class I am taking with Greg Pizzoli. Nothing says holidays like yelling kids and a good old brontosaurus.

These are sketches for my first card. There is a little girl who loves the holidays and everything about them – the snow, the music, the presents, the food. Then there is a boy who takes a more cynical approach and loathes the lines, the joy, the waiting. There is also a little picture there of two shoppers apologizing – I was thinking about Black Friday in a perfect world.

My second card idea involves this sweet brontosaurus who gives himself a little bit of holiday joy. It’s important to be good to yourself, especially at the holidays.
