We didn’t get a lot of real holiday cards this year. The loveliest illustrated card came from Jennifer Nye. I tore the top edge off my card as I opened it. (I get impatient near Christmas.) I asked Jen to send me the digital file and give me permission to share her charming image. WordPress provides a plug-in for this blog that adds the snow effect. It makes Jen’s drawing look like a frame from an animated film.
Jennifer Nye is a 2005 Kutztown University graduate. She did her internship at Crayola. Today she is a freelance graphic designer, illustrator and fine artist in Lancaster, PA. Jennifer started her own freelancing business three years ago and works for a wide range of clientele. I think her web site looks great at nyedesignstudio.com. She feels it is time for a website update and has changes planned for early 2012. I promise to let you know about when that update happens.
Wishing all illustrators a very Merry Christmas,or Hannakuh, or Diwali, or any sacred day you may celebrate. Happy New Year! If any of you, not just Jen, has an updated website or any illustration success to share, please drop us a line.
