A lot of the images I've uploaded lately have been of cards I'm painting for my friends' birthdays. :)  
Most of my traditional painting work seems to be for these cards, which is nice because it's great fun!  It gives me a reason to create nice little unique images on a surprisingly regular basis.  I've forgotten to take photos of quite a few of them, unfortunately :S

Anyway, a couple of people have said I should make these cards to sell.  I'd love to, but I'm just not sure if there's much demand for slightly creepy forest scenes in silhouette ;) at least not for birthday cards, haha!  Maybe around hallowe'en?  

So, anyone who reads this, would you consider buying a card like the ones in my 'Original Card Designs' collection?
I'm just wondering, not asking you to actually buy them! :D

theLastSamu's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United Kingdom
I'm a video game designer at a studio in Cambridge, UK.
I joined the industry in 2006 as an environment artist, but found this left me with little energy or inclination to pursue art in my spare time so I moved into a design role.
Now I'm enjoying working on my own small art projects at home, trying to improve my skills - particularly when it comes to digital painting. :)
I'm here to learn so I love to get feedback on my work!

Hi! It's Micheal here, just wanted to say it was great meeting you yesterday and hearing about your work in design. I didn't know you did cards as well!

Heyhey :) It was lovely to meet you too. Did you have a good day? Are you going to post any of your sketches from yesterday?
At the moment I only paint cards for my friends' birthdays so I didn't think to mention. I'm considering doing something more commercial with them though, what do you reckon?

Oh, I had a fantastic time. This deviantmeet was the awesomeness of the previous two combined and multiplied. :D Since I'm done with college, I'm a little reluctant to go back to use the scanners just yet. I'll want to touch up stuff first.

That would be a wonderful idea. London is currently suffering from a really bad case of tacky and corny cards (or just overly colourful). I find your black, grey and white cards more aesthetically pleasing, and with some mystery as well. Why not put up a poll and see how many people are interested?
