I’m happy to introduce two New Year’s card designs for 2018. Illustrated flowers wish your recipient a wonderful new year with the text “bloom in the new year”. They are available in two colorways with a blue or yellow background. Interiors are blank for your own custom message. These cards feature original illustrations created by me! No stock or clip art here.
All Klinger Creative greeting cards are printed on 100% recycled paper in the USA!
Another brand new greeting card for 2018! Squirrels can be very pesky. They hide nuts in your garden. They dig up seedlings. They chatter loudly while you try to enjoy your patio. But they are kind of cute and very crafty.
As always this card is designed in California and printed in the USA on 100% recycled paper.
For you fellow list-makers out there, I’ve got something just for you. I have two new notepads in the shop. One is blank featuring pansies on a light blue-green background and the other is a to do list with lines and check boxes to help keep you on task. Both are only $7.99 and are shipping now!
WOW! My friend Chris Cacciatore’s NEW game Nebs ‘n Debs is 475% funded on Kickstarter! His campaign ends in 36 hours, so if you’re interested, donate soon. I’m helping him with the design work on this project including the box and manual for the game.
As I kid I grew up with a Super Nintendo that I loved and spent countless hours playing Super Mario World (the music will forever be etched into my brain), Wario Woods, and we even had a Wayne’s World SNES game. Who would have thought that in 2018 I would be designing a box and manual for an NES game?! I love fun projects like this.
My longtime friend Chris Cacciatore of Dullahan Software launched his Kickstarter campaign this morning to raise $5,000 to fund his game Nebs 'n Debs that he's been working on for the past several years. He came in 2nd in the 2016 NESDEV competition, and since then has been refining and developing it into a fully playable game. It's available to play digitally with an NES emulator or you can get a real-deal NES cartridge if you still have your original Nintendo.
I've been assisting with the design of the box and other elements, but the original illustration was created by the incredibly talented Kaela Camille Agustin. Check out her wonderful work on her website.
Go support this Kickstarter campaign and/or share with your friends!

Nevada is this week's state postcard! (I know, I'm a bit behind!) Nevada is a beautiful state with deserts and mountains and wildflower fields with a complicated history of mining, ghost towns, gambling, ranching, and other more "sinful" connotations. I struggled with this one. In the end, I decided on a simple landscape of the rocky dessert with neat rock formations. As with many of the western states, Nevada has a diverse landscape and it was an interesting challenge to pick one and illustrate it.
