Christmas Book 2010

Last year, I wrote a story for my daughter as a Christmas present. I thought it would be fun to do the same thing this year. I even managed to paint a handful of pages (above) before the Christmas rush got the better of me. You can read a full size version here.

Hope everyone has a great holiday!
