It’s kind of weird NOT doing a video today! : ) Thank you for all your kind comments on my “12 Days of Christmas”. I’m so glad that many of you got some good ideas out of it.
NEWS FLASH: Our designers have given CK a whole new look and it’s HOT. This is what the January issue looks like, and you subscribers will be receiving your copy soon.
What do you think? I seriously LOVE it. Fresh. Current. Clean. Beautiful. Classic. Total YUM factor. If you go here, CK is going to give sneak peaks inside the new issue as well.
In other news … I did a layout.
This is for Porter’s album that is about his first portrait art (stick people). If the design looks familiar, it’s very tightly based on my December sketch in the current issue of CK.
I scanned in a bunch of Porter’s art, cropped them to the size I wanted (in Photoshop), and printed these as actual photos, like I would any other photos. Plus, I love having scans of his art so that he can always have them. Who knows what fun things we might do with all those scans of his art when he’s older?
So as you’re using those sketches (I get the impression many of you do), remember that you can use the same sketch over and over and over again. You can get a lot of mileage out of them.
