Happy Holidays

This year’s stinky holiday cards were made with rubber stamps. It was quite the assembly line, with Christine and I cutting paper, scoring, folding, stamping, and envelope licking. But we played records the whole time and it was nice to spend evenings working together on these.

Happy holidays from Swizzle Studio!

Inktober 2021

I did the drawing exercise Inktober again this year. Working from a prompt list, the idea is to draw every day for the month of October.

My rules this year were:

  • Everything in nib pens and india ink
  • Colouring digitally is okay

It was a good run. Here are the drawings! (also on Instagram @swizzlestudio)

WATCH ANYTIME performances are pre-recorded and can be enjoyed throughout the day. Check the schedule for details. LIVE performances are scheduled for specific times. Check the schedule for details.
