12 (Wrong) Days of Christmas
Twelve (Wrong) Days of Christmas
This project began while on vacation, and it was meant to pull me out of a creative slump I had found myself in. Originally it was intended to remain true to the Christmas carol "12 Days of Christmas", but I did not research partridge photos accurately and used an image of a quail for reference. Quails are cooler anyways, so I decided to go with a different subject for each verse rather the traditional objects. Each stamp subject had to fit into the song as the originals had. So the song with this twist goes:

Twelve yummy doughnuts, 
Eleven mighty women, 
Ten cups of coffee, 
Nine window boxes, 
Eight bowls of ramen, 
Seven boats a-sailing, 
Six clocks a-ticking, 
Four swimming frogs, 
Three fat pugs, 
Two rock lobsters, 
And a quail in a small hedge.

Dribbble asked me for a blog post about the creation of the stamps which can be found here.

Thanks for looking- this project was very transformative and enjoyable, and I'd challenge others to take on personal projects like this in times of creative block.
