DeviantArt Holiday Card Project 2019

Front of the card
Inside the card

DeviantArt is encouraging artists to design holiday cards, which they will distribute to people in hospitals during the holiday season. I thought it sounded like a nice thing to do and thought I’d participate. I’ve been wanting to do calligraphy for a while, but this is one of the first times I’ve actually tried it.

The front of the card was done with a micron pen, which was a little hard to work with (for this purpose). Inside, I switched to a brush pen, which made the writing a lot easier. The lettering inside is a little bit crooked, but I don’t think it’s too distracting. Overall, I think it looks pretty good.

I think it’s a great program, and it’s definitely worth doing!
