Barry's Retirement Card by avidlebon
Barry's Retirement Card
Barry, my co-worker and former head of the animation department is retiring so I made him this card. Originally I was going to try to do it in the style of an actual Hallmark card, but when I started finding reference most of it was pretty badly done illustrations. Kind of makes me wonder how the card industry is so successful when the majority of the style is like that, or maybe I was just having rotten luck finding reference photos. Maybe it really is all about the punchline rather than the skill of the art on the card?

Anyway, if you’re not familiar with print format the top one gets printed on one side and the bottom one gets printed on the other side, and when you fold it the panels show the back, the front, the left inside, and the right inside. I also made the barcode on the back into an animation timing chart since he works in the animation department.
Charlie's Butterflies [Pokemon Themed] by avidlebon
Charlie's Butterflies [Pokemon Themed]
This is the card outside. The inside is here .

My co-worker is retiring so I made him this card. The story behind it is he says it's weird to think he's retiring, he's got so much to do he feels like he's going on a take over the world! And he wants to raise butterflies, we have a local museum with a butterfly room that he's going to see if he can volunteer at. The full card reads, "We wish you all the best... IN YOUR CONQUEST TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!! With butterflies!" I thought it would be cute to draw him as a bug catcher with a full set of butterfly/moth Pokemon in his team. Monarchs are his favorite so Butterfree on the outside and Vivillon on the inside are cosplaying that sort of pattern.

Then there was a joke on the back that said, "What do you call it when someone takes over the world with butterflies?" and in the barcode (which at a store would be the price) I encoded the answer which was "A Monarch-y" as Monarchs are his favorite butterfly.
