Cartoon Christmas Tree


For today’s post, I’ve reached way back to my earliest microstock and put up my first cartoon Christmas tree. Christmas is an enormously popular microstock category that sells surprisingly well year round. This 2D Christmas tree was designed to be a multi-version character, which means I have a variety of similar trees with different moods available for sale. These typically include, happy, grumpy and angry. The design of the tree remains the same, but the position of the arms and expression change from one version to the next. This use of the multi-version character can be a great time saver when designing.¬†Happy Christmas!

Cartoon Pig

cartoon_football_playerCartoon pigs have always been favorite microstock images. They have a sympathetic vibe and a beautiful abstract shape that leaves the door open for lots of comic relief. This round little piggy is one of my first microstock pigs. I tried to capture a sweet but confused expression on this pigs face. Even though the original image is a few years old now, this pig still makes me smile.
