Alphabet Card Raffle & a Print


I've been working late nights and early mornings to make a few prints to sell at the CTN expo. Here's an except of one I'm still spending some time on. I'm big fan of swiss designer Max Huber and trying to capture a bit of the spirit of his work.


I've also received the entire shipment of the alphabet cards and they're now occupying a majority of my dining room.


To celebrate the arrival of my cards and my inevitable sleep deprived lead up to CTN, I decided it would be fun to give away a set here. You have one TWO ways to enter to win a free set of Zoom Zoo Cards-

  • Leave a comment on my blog from today - November 7th - until the first day of CTN - November 18th (quick! you have 11 days!)
  • Now a second way to WIN. Tweet about it! Use @michaelyamada and Mention the #ZoomZoo Giveaway for a second chance!

The Winner will be announced November 19th.

ps. I'm still slowly working on some of the originals from the prior giveaway. Patience young padawan.

EDIT : Added a second way to win.
