Hand drawn - Colored with Artist Grade Colored Pencils
Winner of the First ICCA Cachet Contest
The newly formed International Cover Collectors Association - ICCA held a first ever "On-Line" Cachet Contest this past month. The cachets were to be made for the 2016 Lunar Year of the "Fire" Monkey.
My entry was voted to a tie with another very fine cachet design entry...
... and won FIRST PLACE in the "run-off" voting!
Wanting a "Fun" design I of course thought of the "Evil Monkey" theme... with a twist!
These guys did such a poor job at NOT seeing, hearing, and speaking that they were "FIRED"!
A quick cartoon sketch using colored pencil to give it life!
I decided to celebrate by printing EmPrint versions of this design for the current members of the ICCA... and nine extras for the next 9 to join.
Go to the EmPrint Page to see the printed version...
... Below is #1 of 4 that will be hand painted. It is basically done with colored pencil...
In addition to the EmPrint covers I also had four (4) canceled with the Dora Missouri Cancel that the EmPrint covers bear... These four will be hand painted and offered for sale - first come first served.
1 of 4 (seen above) is already gone.
Number 2 of 4 - Painted with Water-Based Oils
Only two more availabel.
