happy christmas

hi there – just a quick post christmas card by chris cowdrillto wish you a merry christmas.  i hope that you have had a great year, and wish you all the best for 2016.  thank you to all who have stopped by on here to check out my artwork (and maybe read the posts too).

my christmas card design this year is type-based.  i love working with typography – especially drawing it all out by hand.  i’ve liked working with type since i was a teenager – whether it was practicing calligraphy with different fountain pens (gothic script was always my favourite), or laboriously copying different styles from an old letraset catalogue (exciting eh?!).  anyway, i hope you like the combination of handwriting and fonts that i’ve adapted for this design.
