Illustration Friday: VOICES

Merry Christmas Eve Eve! Here's a little sketch that I'll consider an homage to my brother, my sister, me, and Christmas Past. When I started this little sketch, I didn't intend it to be autobiographical, and it's not exactly (I don't recall us ever caroling in front of the tree like that, nor was my brother's head that round or big.) But I was just drawing, and then all of a sudden there were two older girls and a younger brother and similar haircuts to ours circa 1993 or so. And the older girl's holding the book (and therefore she's probably the bossy mastermind of this little photo op) while the middle one looks like she's singing the nicest and enjoying the attention and the little boy is probably stealing the show by hamming it up and knowing his audience. And that was pretty much us back in the day.

So happy Christmas Eve Eve to my family and yours. See you in 2009!
