It's Christmas Season! Christmas Ostrich Says So.

It's Christmas Season! Christmas Ostrich Says So.

Christmas Ostrich is my second animal themed holiday card! I drew Christmas Cow last year, and stayed pretty obsessed with him the entire year. I taped him all over my old office, at everyone's desk, and smiled every time I saw him. So this year, I buckled down in October to draw a Christmas animal buddy! Ostrich just came to mind because their necks are so cool and they have really funny faces and huge bodies. Also, she's incredibly easy to deck out with ribbons!

This year I am selling the cards on my Etsy shop, where they will be 6 for $15 (plus shipping). If you live locally and you want some, just leave me a comment and we can arrange a pick-up/drop-off or at least cheaper shipping. OR, if you just want one card, I can make you a custom listing on Etsy. Individual cards will cost $3/each. 

The print run for these was small, since these were my first cards for sale, so almost half have already sold! If you want some, you should let me know quickly, since I really feel that everyone should have a Christmas Cow in their life.

Honestly, just looking at these cards makes me so happy. I just love illustrating things that are so goofy, just because I can. Hopefully you love them, too! Also, I know that holiday shopping season is starting now, and I wanted to remind you all that shopping locally is a great way to support the arts, small business, and our local economy. Things might be slightly more pricy, but most people really appreciate handmade or locally sourced gifts, and you can feel good knowing that your dollars are going directly to the hands that made the products. In Hamilton, some great local stores include The White Elephant (I already bought two Christmas presents here!) and Mixed Media
