yet more postcards
These are some more postcards I made for promotional work, since I realised I had no black and white work in my children's style that wasn't incredibly old. I discovered, to my delight, that the sort of hatching I used for Patience is a Virtue comes out really well with this line art, so I'm very pleased with them.
Incidentally, the foxes are from a story I very vaguely remember from my childhood, about a fox whose husband dies. Her suitors all have more and more tails, but she eventually marries one with just one tail. It had beautiful illustrations, but we got the book from the library and none of us (me, my sisters, my parents) can remember what it was called or who wrote it. If any of you know anything about it I'll love you forever if you can help me find it.
