Happy holidays!

Wow, I can't believe it's been almost two months since I last posted... well, actually, yes I can. Aside from having a three month old, work has been particularly hectic lately. Typically, November and December are my slowest work months, but not this year. Hmmm, actually, last year was kind of busy too, come to think of it. That's when I was working on Minoriteam...Well, anyway, I've had a lot on my plate lately, some of which I'll share soon. One thing I've done in the past week or two is inking some pages of Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for Mirage. I'd never worked on that property before, and it was pretty cool. I'll post some of that work soon.

In the meantime, I just wanted to take the opportunity to wish anyone out there reading this a very happy holiday season. The above is the holiday card I created last year. The concept is based on a question my sister asked when she was about 6 years old or so... roughly 30 years ago. She asked, "If the Christian people have Santa Claus, does that mean we have Hana Claus?" We always kidded about that, and it took thirty years, but last year, I finally designed the character. You can click on the picture for a slightly larger version. In our blended family, we celebrate both holidays, so it only seems appropriate to have an icon representing each!

I hope everyone out there has a very happy, healthy holiday season, and a peaceful and prosperous New Year!
