Merry Christmas!

Christmas illustration

I’ve been too busy to design, print, and mail an actual Christmas card this year. So once again I went the digital route and sent a Christmas email with the above image to everyone on my mailing list. (Click the image to enlarge).

If you didn’t get one, you are welcome to sign up over to the right of this blog post, or on the Contact page of my website. About every 6-8 weeks I send out a brief email update on my latest project(s), and sometimes include links to interesting blog posts.

Either way, I appreciate your taking time to swing by and I’m deeply grateful for your interest in my work. So to all of you, have a very merry Christmas! I hope your year ahead is a very pleasant and prosperous one.

Another Christmas Illustration

Here’s another Christmas illustration I’ve been working on as part of a self-promotion campaign. It’s really fun to be able to noodle something up just for me without any restrictions based on client’s needs.

One of my all-time favorite stories is Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”. Recently I’ve been getting inspired by watching and re-watching some of the film versions of the story. My favorites are the TV movie starring George C. Scott and the musical “Scrooge” starring Albert Finney. With all those Victorian-era images swimming around in my head I decided to doodle up this character. My wife thinks he looks like a chestnut vendor. I kinda like that.

Merry Christmas one and all!
