My work is a collection of greeting cards depicting small animals in the theme of their designated holiday. Six card designs in total with hand lettered titles for each holiday. I chose to do this as my senior project because it shows my love for whimsy and small animals, which is heavily reflected in my art style. I’ve got a particular liking for whimsical things because they give me a sense of nostalgia for my childhood. I spent a lot of time outside as a child with my brother and neighbors making our own fun and watching the animals wonder and live their lives around us. I remember reading books as a child that had talking animals that wore clothes and did other human things. I loved those books and I not only wish to depict that feeling in my greeting card and other work, but also in my own children’s books in the future.
