December Blog Header

A rough and ready header for December because I can’t post unless the header’s done and I don’t need any more excuses not to catch up on reviews! (And obviously am looking for excuses to put off this week’s illustration friday picture).

This sketch is for an idea I’d like to try (by which I mean it is yet another Christmas card design which didn’t make it in time) but much more Renaissance tending into Byzantine with a touch of fire. Although the bird on the Queensland coat of arms has a very handsome wing design, so I might incorporate that as well.
