Christmas Gifts

Christmas Gifts Illustration

This should really be titled, "Almost Everything I Got for Christmas." I drew this Christmas day (so I could play with my new markers) and I didn't end up drawing all my gifts. But I did get in the butterfly clip my niece, Lyz, gave me.

In other news, I flew home to Massachusetts today and it was a bumpy ride. I was doodling a bit during a pit-stop, when one of the flight attendants asked me to draw his portrait. Well, first he asked me if the woman sitting next to me was my sister. She wasnt. But I did end up drawing him, off of a little happy-faced photo on his business card. I think he sells juice when he's on the ground.

So, I was hoping to maybe get a free cocktail or an extra bag of peanuts outta him, but there was so much turbulence that the flight attendants had to stay seated the entire ride. One day I'll profit from this little skill of mine, one day.

I'd accept nothing less than 35,000 air miles as a swap for a drawing.

Hey that turned out nice! You're very talented, I am sure that you'll be blowing your nose with ten dollar bills someday...

well maybe not, cause that would be really wasteful, and someone, somewhere could probably use that money, but you catch my drift.
