IF Soar

Here is my entry to this week's Illustration Friday "Soar" challenge. It is loosely based on the Quebec Folk legend La Chasse-Galerie, that according to some takes place on New Year's Eve -- so with that Happy New Year (but don't go making any deals with the Devil or go flying off in a Bewitched Canoe)!

Ecard on HD Greetings

I created an ecard for the HighDef HD Greeting Holiday Contest. You can take a look at it here.

The card is available in English on the site, but if you'd like to send it with a different tag photo I've made a few different language versions. Right click on any of these images to save them to your computer and then when you are at the "personalize" menu when sending the card, choose to add a photo, and choose the alternate language photo you saved.
