Lately I have started working on a drawing for a tarot card. This one is going to feature Kasha, from my comic series, Green Corner
. (edit: this was going to be part of a collaborative tarot project, but I am no longer participating)
I haven't drawn many standalone images of Kasha, but here is an old one
Kasha is a celebrity within the world of Green Corner
, famous for winning the Elven Championships two years in a row. The Elven Championships are prmarily an athletic competition, with a variety of events. Placing high in multiple events gives the competitor a greater chance of winning a title of "Queen" or "King" (with points assigned based on ranking in each event). The female with the highest points after all events earns "Queen" while "King" goes to the male with the highest points. The championships start at high school age, and Kasha is also seen as rather remarkable because she competes with others who are a year older than herself (she skipped a grade in school) and has always ranked highly.
I'm considering making the digital final of this tarot card into a tutorial, but right now I'm only at sketching stage. I will probably share a black and white version here when it's ready, before the final piece. Progress images will likely be posted to my beta readers for Green Corner
first, then later shared on my art blog
. I try to limit in-progress pieces in my DA gallery, but I'll be sure to link to my art blog
posts showing the progress work for those interested.
I'm still working on finishing up the latest comic page too. I'm just working on a bunch of things at once, so it might take a little while before it's up.
As far as wedding collateral pieces go, I'm going to start cross-posting more of those here, to promote individual pieces and sets in my Zazzle shop
. I have been working on a promotional flyer that is pretty much done now, I just need to make some minor adjustments for it to be distributed in different areas. I am also going to get started on a promotional brochure for wedding collateral design services, because those are better for distribution at places like hotels. The flyers are more for boards where space is limited for take-aways. I'm still trying to find a way to have contact information on a take-away piece for the flyer option, since I don't want to depend on people writing the info down. It's best to make it easy for people to get in touch with me for these services, after all!
If you're interested in seeing some of the pieces I've created already, you can see them here: eventdesign.emilygonsalves.com
and the template designs are here: in my Zazzle shop
The thank you cards are the easiest type of item to customize with your own text for other purposes, but if something else works for you, please go ahead and enjoy as you see fit! Custom wedding collateral (or other special event collateral) services generally run $50 hourly, but I would consult with you based on your needs and provide an estimate before starting work. Don't be afraid to contact me remotely. I am happy to talk to you over the phone and/or on Skype if meeting in person is not feasible. I have also done cards and programs for other purposes, so feel free to contact me for anything custom.

Most of the pieces that I post here are vector illustrations made with Adobe Illustrator CS3, but I've worked with a variety of media and techniques over the years. I still do work in traditional media, just not as often.
