Description of the process :
Originally I illustrated this graphic for a Christmas Card Fundraiser I coordinated for my college Grad Show in 2002. Happily it was the most popular design, raising 30% of the profits out of 22 other designs! Since then I sold Santa to my amiable first employer out of college,– Image Craft – where it continues to be sold at Christmas at shops across North America.
Note : Image Craft, Inc. (Ontario, Canada) closed June 2006 with the bankruptsy of its parent company, Paramount Greetings (USA). The rights to the artwork I created for Image Craft has been transfered to their new owners… Hallmark. So if you happen to see this design on a new Hallmark Card…give me a buzz :) Thank goodness I’ve kept all the original artwork!
