Cards & invitations

Every year I create an illustrated New Year's card. I have also taken a few birthday invitation commissions over the years, and I design the occasional card just for fun.

The 2019 New Year's Card is inspired by yet another of my kid’s hilarious Halloween costumes (and I have outfitted the Girl Avenger in my Girl Han Solo duds). Cheers to a new year that will, hopefully, be less scary than the one before!
