Christmas Story

Every Christmas, I do a little drawing for my wife that is inked, watercolered, and well, as finished as I can possibley make it. The problem is that I never like these as much as the quick, spontaneous drawings I do at work.
So this year, I did something different. I wrote a story and did little story sketches to illustrate it.
This was more work than you can imagine. I will never do this again.
These are just a couple of them.
I did these with a Pitt brush pen. I'll color them later, if I have time. I still have to wrap her presents. Crap.
Chrismas is hard.
Merry Christmas!!

Thanks! She really liked it. I think that I have inadvertantly created a tradition. Anyway, i am currently scanning the images into the computer so that I can create a little book for her. I was goofing around with a little imovie storyreel as well.
I have created a monster.

This is so rad. I like this better than your stuff for work! (Oops!) But true! I have done artwork for my gal in the past, but now I am lazy. This is really great.

I drew them the same way that I do at work, the only difference is that the story is mine and was done for an audience of one, maybe two.
Perhaps that is enough of a difference.
