Lucy the One-Eyed Reindeer

Lucy the One-Eyed Reindeer
Had a very gleamy eye!

This was one of the christmas carols my dad made up when I was a kid. Not having a radio in his Jeep (or a heater either) helped with the creativity. I have the whole story about lucy, maybe I'll share it with you someday.

Family Event Christmas Cards

I've designed a christmas card every year since '99. The idea is to design it around an event of the year. Here are the fronts and backs of a few of my cards.

2002 was pretty uneventful, so I tried out a new style.


2003 is when my family adopted three horses. This is Sandy Claus.


In 2004 Sandy had a fowl, Katie. Also we rescued two dogs, Amber and Bear. The back shows that our other dog passed away after 18 years.

All I make are Christmas cards...


My dad requested this one two years ago. We titled it "How the Polar Express ALMOST Ruined Christmas." Anyone familiar with Tolkien's Father Christmas letters will recognize the North Polar bear.

I made this one for my friends at Sheridan back in first year. (When these movies were coming out every december). So loong ago.
