"Let it Snow," Christmas 2005

This whimsical "flash" card was sent out to clients shortly before Christmas in 2005.
I've been creating personalized Christmas Greetings most of my life; first by incorporating Charles Shultz' "Peanuts" characters onto the signature lines of cards, and also decorating my '52 Plymouth for the holidays with Snoopy, Linus, Lucy and Charley Brown; then by creating my own version of other cartoon characters for the holidays.

During the 1970s, I worked in various mediums and produced cards from linoleum cuts, silk screens and pen & ink drawings, but after opening my own business in 1978 began to expand both my holiday list, and the use of my cards as a way to promote services.

Over the years, media has changed, as have my cards, from pastel and pen & ink to multimedia productions, interactive quizzes and fine art paintings. Included in this site are some of the holiday greetings and promotional items produced by me and my firm over that last 30+ years. Hope you enjoy them, and have a happy 2010 holiday and a MORE profitable 2011.

"It's a Wonderful Life" Christmas, 2000

"It's a Wonderful Life" is one of America's favorite films. It stars Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed and tells of a man who reclaims his hope in the world by the intervention of a guardian angel, Clarence. The year 2000 was a difficult year, and I decided to create a parody on the film using my family. The short video took on a life of its own. The ending commercial was created by my step son, Kyle.
