Here is this years card, and as a first I'm also going to include the process by popular request. First I did a little blue pencil sketch about 3 inches tall, then did a tighter graphite pencil over the top. Scanned that in and enlarged to 8"x10" and tweaked it a little. Printed that out and then inked on hot press Bristol Board and Pitt Pens. Scanned that in and then did all the color in Photoshop (you'll notice that I even changed a few things on the inked art in Photoshop even at that stage). I'm really in to trying to simulate a watercolor look these days, although I still like to do the real thing.
