Season's Greetings, Blog Followers. Sorry I've been kinda lazy with showing off my work lately. Sadly, I've been too busy doing work to show it off. And what's worse is most of the pieces I've been doing are Christmas presents...so I can't show them off yet.
It's been a year of ups (Joannie) and downs (North Catholic), but 2010 seems to be ending nicely. I was just hired as the new Development Coordinator at the University of the Arts. Since I have been teaching there part-time for years and they helped several of my high school students in the past (not to mention giving me a grant towards Sketches of Fishtown, Vol II), I am really happy to join the staff. I love the school. They treat me really well. It's nice to be attached to a mission I believe in.
Anyways, here are a few Christmas-related drawings I've done in the past few weeks. The first is my Christmas card, which I have included Joannie, Aaron, Brandon, and Joannie's dog Zoe in. Joannie very much wanted me to do a family-type card this year. I'm glad she did, because I think it's the best one I've ever done:
Here is an ornament I made for Joannie's Mom. Every year, my Mom sent out a Lion & Lamb card. So I wanted to include big Joan in that tradition somehow:
And here is a piece I did for Spirit Newspapers to accompany the article "Scrooge, the Grinch, George Bailey, & Me":
I hope everyone has a great Christmas and an awesome new year. Please keep in touch.
