Geeky Greeting Card Spotlight #3

Sorry for the hiatus, Minions. The holidays threw me out of whack, completely.

So, when I last left you, it was still X-mas time. Snow on the ground, presents around the tree, the sounds of family yelling at each other over the top of extravagantly prepared meals filling the air – brings a tear to the eye, doesn’t it?

Well, it is no longer Xmas. But that means we’re staring down the barrel of that most insidious of holdays: Valentine’s Day. Back when MMP first started, we sold Zombie greeting cards and after the first 3 Xmas designs, I did up some Valentine’s cards. So, I’m going to talk about one of those today.

oYu stole my heart

This was one of the first “Geeky Greetings” I’d ever done and the first Zombie Valentine. We were thinking up ideas for our Zombie cards and I sketched up this hand coming out of the ground with a heart in it. I don’t know where it came from, but it came out pretty much fully-formed. Ashlie thought up the text and here we have it: Our very first VD card.

And I think that’s it for this week. Thanks for reading the newest installment of “Geeky Greeting Card Spotlight.” Is there any card in particular you’d like to see me talk about? Let me know in the comments or email me at the contact button above.

Kevin The Zombie: NaNoPicBookWriMo Week 2

As many of you know, November is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short. I’ve always thought the idea of Nanowrimo is a great one, giving writers, both professional and not the impetus and support to actually sit down and write that novel they’ve had stuck in their craw. It’s a great thing. I,Continue Reading
