Sleepy Sundays: Flashes Of

Flashes Of © 2017-2018 Snapping Turtle Arts | cardcastlesinthesky.com

There’s some floral sets I’m going to be rolling out through this spring. Today though, I’ve decided to share something different. This animation is from a past project I recently scrapped at the top of this year. Even though the project itself has been trashed, I decided to keep some of my transitions, designs, and animations to use on other projects.

This happens to be one of those animations. It marked the arrival of a character in the story’s plot. Something told me that today would be a good day to share it.

Have you ever tossed something into the fire only to go back and grab it before it turns to ash?

Have a flashy Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Nimble

The northeast region got blasted this weekend with some icy winds making it seem like the dead of winter when it’s really still fall. We’ve got a bunch of important milestones coming up for our son in his schooling. There are some changes going on in just about every aspect of my life. They are achy changes, but changes I am willing to accept. Some of this overdose of new I’m even starting to like.

This character concept that almost didn’t happen due to a busy schedule and some technical issues, was inspired by a busted mouse. No not an actual little furry guy, don’t worry. Nope, it was a busted mouse that I very much need in order to create any illustration at all. We had to replace it in order for me to be able to keep working, even in the midst of other family obligations.

I’m going to let my son name him. I think this little mouse would be cute for holiday greetings as well. He may make more appearances.

Has anything broken on you lately? Did you make the best of it?

Have a peaceful Sunday!

Friends on the East Coast, stay warm!

Sleepy Sundays: An Escape

An Escape

I’ll keep this one short and sweet since I know a lot of you are celebrating spring breaks and holiday weekends. This is simply a little something soothing for your Sunday.

Are you on a spring vacation? I sure hope so. Let us all escape the madness. 🙂 

Have a peaceful Sunday!

Best of CardCastles 2016!

Although this year was filled with ups, downs, and downright madness around the world, some truly remarkable things still managed to happen here.

There is still so much left out, but thank you all for an amazing year of growth and opportunity.

Happy New Year
