In late November a regular US client, GSS, asked me to do their annual Christmas Card again. For a third time I convinced them to do a full rendered illustration. And this time I managed to convince them to do a group scene, with children. This was mainly as they were about to release a range of protective clothing for kids.
As per normal the client requested that parts of the illustration portrayed their products. So, I incorporated a man wearing full safety outfit, as well as adding safety vests to two of the kids throwing snowballs. Other than that, the illustration was done much the way I had planned it.
