So This Is Christmas...

... and what have I done? Not a whole heckuva lot, lately. Better late than never, I hope.

For most folks Christmas time starts the day after Thanksgiving. For my mother, it starts October first. For others it's later (for some department stores it's sooner), but for ME... Christmas isn't officially here until I watch The Grinch. My folks and I did this weekend, so I was inspired to do this quick sketch of him tonight. I'm never gonna top Dr. Seuss or Chuck Jones, but I think this was a pretty good mix of their styles and mine.

... normally I'd never post one of my students' drawings, but while I doodled tonight one of my younger students was himself inspired and did an AMAZING drawing. I made a photocopy of it, and I posted a scan below. I hope that's not a horrible thing to do, I was just so proud of him, the drawing is fantastic; this guy is a third grader, I think.
