On my birthday this is the card I received from my daughter <3 The illustration wasn’t coloured in when I got it. We did that together, my 1.5 year old and me. It was so much fun. And the illustration – that’s one of my husbands. You can also get a copy of the giraffe illustration along with other illustrations of animals and buildings drawn by my husband from his shop on Etsy. Etsy has a new function that enables him to sell a digital file directly to you. Once you have gone through checkout and paid with Paypal or your credit card you will get access to an instant download of the file. You can then print this file as many times as you want. The idea is that you can buy the illustration in a smaller resolution for printing on A4 or US letter size paper – the price for animals in this version is €1.99 (approx. $2.75). John also sells larger resolutions of his illustrations, perfect for printing on posters or larger paper for €7.5 (approx. $10). You can also order a version of any of the animals with a custom message (like the one for my birthday) for €3.5 (approx. $4.75), perfect for birthdays, mother’s day, father’s day and anything else you can think of. John has more animals as a single file coming. You can see them all on the Munich Zoo poster which you can also buy at €14.99 (approx. $20). You can have a look at the items in John’s shop here below. If you want to see more of what John is up to he writes a blog (John’s Different Shades), has a portfolio (which you can subscribe to by email) and is on Facebook. I hope you will give his drawings a chance. I really like the idea of giving everyone across the world such easy access to the drawings. All you need is a printer.
