Short Shrift Cards

The Digital Darkroom Project


Short Shrift Cards (A Lonely Cloud Production) or even a Pig's Ear Product
I originally thought of Pig's Ear Products as a name but was advised that this wasn't really suitable.
Then I did a card for my mother (see Shorty below) which was the original Short Shrift Card. The name stuck from then on.

These portraits are of friends and family and were used as birthday cards.

The Christmas Card Archive

Carol and I design and produce our own Christmas cards and have now done twenty one years worth.
Initially the cards were done as lino prints or wood engravings and hand produced.
From 2003, with the advent of cheap scanners and decent printers most cards were
lino printed, drawn or painted and then scanned and printed digitally (2004 and 2010 are purely digital).

Architectural Manoeuvres in the Dark and Other Erotica

This section will be reorganised shortly. It consists of birthday cards and invitations.
Some of them have been produced as postcards.
There is a mixture of sketches, drawings, paintings, computer illustrations and sometimes a combination of media.
I was also commissioned to design a poster to campaign against the building of a
rail freight terminal near St. Albans.
