I finally bit the bullet and ordered some more self-promo holiday cards. I've really been pleased with my brush lettering lately - in other words - yes the "merry christmas" portion of the postcard was done by hand using a Pentel Pocket Brush.

I'm working on some educational materials for younger kids - this particular one is a math game!
I love this shark! He's got crazy eyes.
Here's how the game will work:
There are two schools (piles) of fish cards lying face down. Each fish has a number from 0 to 5 OR a SHARK! Draw one fish from each pile and add the two numbers together. And use one of your markers to cover the bubble with that number. If you draw a shark, you lose a turn. If you draw TWO sharks - it's a SHARK ATTACK and you have to draw a third fish. The third fish tells you how many of your markers you have to feed to the shark.
How do you win?
so far - we've figured out that if you are playing with two players (or younger kids) - it's kind of a long game - so it'll probably be first player with 5 markers on the board wins. If you are playing with more players or older kids (ie. better attention spans, little bit quicker with simple addition) it goes a little bit faster so you play until the whole board is full. Person with the most markers on the board WINS!
it's kind of hard coming up with fun math games for kids - BUT I've been doing a ton of research and I think I can make some good ones. WISH ME LUCK!

New art prints uploaded to my ETSY! I've had this simple idea in my head for ages. So I thought I should just get it done. Three images are available for download. Take a look! https://www.etsy.com/listing/253178354/dream-of-starry-nights-and-paris-lights
