From the Vault - Christmas Card 1993

I had to dig a bit in the back of the vault to find this, the first ever Christmas card I did to send out to people.

I was about a year out of college and pretty much all alone living in New Jersey. I wanted to do something to reach out to family and friends I missed during the holidays and sending out custom made Christmas cards seemed a great way to do it.

Back then I simply did a black and white illustration and printed them out on 8.5"x11" paper, folded them up, and sent them on their way. I actually really like the trucker cap, biker looking Santa Claus I used to do for these cards. I may have to bring him back someday.

With only a few exceptions, since I did this card, I've done a holiday card each year and sent them out to those nearest and dearest to me.

The cards, over the years, have turned into more sophisticated colored pieces but the thought behind them is always the same. I miss you all and hope you have a great holiday season!

Take care of yourselves out there!
