The last few years, I have designed my own holiday card. You can see one design here. It’s important for me to add my personal touch to everything I do, and rather than buying a box of greeting cards, I opted to design my own.

During the last few weeks. I have been sketching little messy thumbnails in my sketchbook, and compiled a few ideas. After finalizing my thoughts and ideas,  I started to marker render a few of the shoes, and then started to work out the holiday card in photoshop.

I wanted to share my ideation with you. However, at the end of the week, you will see the final  card, so check back then! Cheers!

My fiance mentioned to me that during his trip to NYC, he saw some cute shoe ornaments at the MOMA. So, I thought it would be cool to create my own. I was inspired my some of the ornaments from Crate and Barrel.

Below you will find a few marker rendered shoe ornaments.























Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on my 2011 holiday card. Check back Friday! Happy Holidays!
