Here is a Christmas card based on actual events. Our cat ruined our tree one year. Today, the tree has been saved thanks to packing tape on the bottom branches. It worked like a charm.

Illustration Friday: Backwards

It's been snowing in my hometown. Looks like most of the northern United States has put of with this weather.

I miss the days I went sledding with my son. Now, he is taller than me. Getting on the sled just isn't as easy as it used to be!

Illustration Friday: Little Things

Serendipity! I was working on this illustration when Illustration Friday announced "Little things" was the theme.

I liked the play in this photo. Is the little thing the boy or whatever the boy is hiding from the teacher? You decide!

Santa Makeover?

I wonder if Santa gets tired of his wardrobe? What if he looks better in spring colors? The poor man!

I illustrated this for the local, high school Christmas concert. As luck would have it, it works with Illustration Friday's topic of "excess."

We go to excesses at Christmas, don't we? We shop and eat until December 26th, then we make resolutions to get back in physical and financial shape.

Merry Christmas, and pace yourselves. All those excesses can weigh on a person.
