Tintin Christmas Card no.1 by Wainyman Tintin Christmas Card no.1 by Wainyman
A Christmas card design featuring Hergé's Tintin and Snowy. The first of two drawn for friends, this piece came together quite easily. The figure was drawn from a photograph, the sky sketched from the view outside my window and the rest from imagination. I didn't want to draw a 'funny' card but a more traditional piece; not twee, but more down that road than humourous.

Stand by for the second card ...

Coloured pencil on textured card, 150 x 150 mm.

Thak god, a safe haven for those tired to see deviations of a cute or badass manga-style Tintin! You made my day, especially with that plot-less picture... Nice and simple.

Thank-you, I'm glad it has that effect - I didn't want it to look too new or flash. Cheers for commenting!

:hart: Cuuuuute dude, very cute. :aww: Is there a way you could mass-produce those cards so I could buy one?

Thanks! Err ... I suppose I could get a few printed if there was a demand; I just sent the original drawings as cards last year. I'd like to do some more this year, so who knows ...?

Oh, yes, I've certainly tried to keep it safe. I'm thinking of a nice way to display it - currently trying to find a clip-frame that's the right size! ;)

That's because I was awkward and didn't use a recognised format like A5. You could perhaps mount it into an A4 frame with a border, I'm not sure. It'd be a novelty to have my work framed! Glad it's been kept!
