I do a card every year for a local garage who specialise in mending trucks. They are great clients, easily amused by my drawings and very loyal, they come back every year. I thought I’d share the progress of this year’s card.
First of all the boss gets in touch and reminds me that he’d like me to do one again this year. I put my thinking cap on and try not to replicate previous ideas but I have to say that I have done a lot of Santa/Rudolf/Sleigh type drawings in the past.
I sent them a number of ideas and this below shows just a couple of them. The initial reaction was to go for the ‘Emissions’ card, but being democratic they take a vote between them and choose what the majority like. They chose the truck, which I think is the ‘safe’ idea, but the emissions one is funnier to me, but then fart jokes and Christmas might have not gone down too well ( if you get my drift ) amongst some of their customers. Who knows?
So there you have it, the complete journey. Keep on trucking.
