Our son has caught a nasty summer cold, which means he’s not sleeping and so neither are we. It’s a zombified household over here. So real posts have to wait a week, but we have a couple of nice recent things we did to share with you then.

We took the end of the last week off to spend it in a total mess of the renovations we’re having. It was mildly entertaining but not great for working on posts.

Sorry for the short hiatus, guys, but not only did Carrie wipe us out a little – we’re also working on our new studio website and it’s a huge enterprise. We’ll share the progress as we go on, especially the new project photos.

In the meantime we wanted to show you a resurrection of sorts of one of our minimalist Disney posters: the cover for a Belgian lifestyle magazine Knack Weekend. We were asked for the Pinocchio design for the cover because it fit the theme of the issue, about the lies people tell, and we were happy to cooperate. Pinocchio gained a new background and some international exposure.

The original Pinocchio poster.

May you have a wonderful new year full of joy and peace,
accomplishments and rest, quiet time with family and exuberant time with friends
(or the other way round). And may you always draw joy from what you love
and satisfaction from what you do.

May you have a wonderful time during the holiday season,
may you spend it in warmth and joy with the people you love
and may you find a moment to do something silly and fun.

This year again we managed to find time for a hand-made Christmas card which doubles as a Christmas tree decoration. The making-of process pictured below:
