This year for the holidays I was running behind decided to change things up and make a new years card for the first time. These days a reason to be optimistic can be few and far between, but a toast to better days to come usually cracks a smile.
I started off with a hand sketch concept, which I refined digitally in Figma with the help of visual research from Hello Lucky Cards and some Dribbblings.
The hardest part for sure was getting the glasses’ mouths to simultaneously read as their facial expression and as liquid contents. I got some fun texts as people opened their cards and look forward to refining my illustration style with more fun projects like this.
