Greeting Cards by Tiffany Kwak

It all started with some blank cards (28 to be exact), a trusty old gel pen, some watercolors, and a challenge.

I recently came up with the #28DaysCardChallenge where I attempted to illustrate my imagination and interpretations of the world onto a greeting card for every day in February.

The results came out better than I expected, and I have kept going ever since.

“And the Tree was happy” was my interpretation of Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree.

The way I designed this card was if you covered up each section starting from the outer edges, it takes you through the tree’s journey of unconditional love and giving.

“Hap-pea Friday Eve” was a fun piece for me because it was how I imagined a snapshot of a Rube Goldberg experiment would look like. Plus, who doesn’t want a good excuse to go find intricate gumball machines for inspiration?
