A Llama Inspiration

Greeting cards are the outlet to my random bouts of creativity, especially around the Christmas season. To make a greeting card oneself is to express emotion towards someone you love in a simple image and few words. It is usually much appreciated in this day of Hallmark and e-cards. All you need is a piece of paper, a pen and some markers or watercolors! And an idea of course.

Sometimes when I don’t have a good idea, I simply draw the first thing that comes to mind.

the first thing that came to mind

And then you go from there. I have yet to color it in and write the thank-you note, which might go something like this:

“There once was a llama named Hank

who didn’t know who to thank.

He turned around and around,

till he finally found,

you were staring him in the face point-blank.

Thank you Aunt ____ for your awesome gift of _____!!! I’ve already worn it/used it/eaten many times!!!

Love,

Claire”

About Claire Shapleigh, Biomedical Visualization

Hi, my name is Claire and I'm in my second year of the Biomedical Visualization MS program at UIC. It's a combination of art and science, and it's pretty fun. So far I've dissected a human body and learned how to draw in 2D using a computer AND my hand, and I'm about to learn how to 3D model. Holler at me if you have any questions about the program!
