I had originally intended this as a Christmas post, but I was away for the holidays and forgot to bring my tablet pen.
A snapshot of happier times. This must have taken place before Claire and her fellowship (sistership?) ran away. It’s been a long time since I drew Catharine looking healthy and unscathed. I almost forgot what she looked like that way! XD
For new followers, “Sister Claire” is my webcomic series, all free to read online at http://www.sisterclaire.com/. The first book is coming out soon! =)
I forgot my tablet at home (I’m away for xmas) so I wasn’t able to get my xmas pic finished today. It will be up by New Years!
I’ll post previews of Kickstarter-exclusive artwork in the meantime. Thank you to everyone who pledged and spread the word! <3
Here is a little preview of the Xmas pic which I’ll post on New Year’s:
It’s the countdown to Xmas, and also to the end of the Sister Claire Book 1 kickstarter! You still have ONE DAY left to pledge, and there are still lots of cool rewards (keychains, custom sketches, and more!) so please spread the word! =)
This one goes out to a special friend of mine who’s artwork is so wonderful it should never be wasted, no matter what it’s drawn on!
Wow, I never expected my little doodle on the package to end up as an ornament! It’s somehow fitting for her, though. XD
I also got this from my friend Vera in Holland:
It’s perfect. <3
Here’s to the future, and whatever it has in store.
To XMAS And Beyond!
A great video by The Thinking Atheist summarizing everything wrong about the, “put the Christ back in Christmas,” nonsense.
When I was younger and I started researching Xmas and learning about how all the traditions actually stemmed from much older Pagan religions, I enjoyed it much more. My favorite Xmases are always in Austria, where many of the ties to the Pagan origins are a lot more obvious- like St. Nicholas and the Krampus, not to mention holiday bonfire celebrations. XD
