I meant to post this last week, but my wife and I are trying to buy a house, so I've been a bit busy. Better late than never, right? (Illustration Friday, topic: late)


This is my 2008 Christmas card design. I'll be printing off 250 of these. If anyone's interested, I'll be offering them for sale in packs of five and ten. The cards are standard, 5 inch by 7 inch size and they're professionally printed on thick, glossy card stock.

5 cards will cost US $11, shipping included for US and Canadian residents. 10 cards will be US $20, shipping included for US and Canadian residents. Sorry, I'll have to charge extra for people in other countries. Just post a comment if you're interested and I'll email ordering info. I'll probably be posting some PayPal links/buttons within the next week.

Also, in case you missed it, I was interviewed recently by the awesome vector illustration website Vectips. CHECK IT OUT! Also, big thanks to Bella Sinclair for mentioning me in her list of seven artists on the web she admires. She's quite an artist herself.

Vector Illustration, Adobe Illustrator CS3 and CS4

You just drop a note and I 'm coming to visit you! How wonderful are your delicious and funny characters. I tell you the color is just HOT!!! I love everything about it. I'm loving your style my friend. How did you find the time to do this while looking for a house? Your are just too, too talented. I can't walk and chew game at the same time. he he heh

Haha, what a great card Chris! best wishes to you and your wife on the house buying.

You made an effective use of Christmas colors without it being obvious. I'm impressed how you do all this in Illustrator. It's inspiring!

Oooooh just as I was thinking "I want some cards out of this" you said you are going to sell some! Keep us posted, I love it!

very nice

love the Yeti

You have a very special color palette and I really enjoy it! :)


Glory, glory, hallelujah, Chris! Wouldn't that be something if a giant snow-capped mountain monster gave you a house for Christmas? How fabulous this is. The colors make me sing. Congrats on the interview, and I hope you and your wife find a hum-dinger of a house. And thanks for the shout-out. That really made MY day!

so fantastic greeting card with your unique style! i hope you find your dream in a new house for christmas :)

It's very nice. I like it allot. The colour and balance is superb. I hope the bird is somehow getting two houses for Christmas. I really like your solution to the housing crisis. I haven't had any root beer in a while. Maybe I will have some tonight.

I love the color you choose!

woow... Great piece. Beautifully done!

Love it.

Being that this is a holiday special, you're gonna have to make a statement on whether or not it should be considered canon.

Beautiful work, man. Excellent characters and colors as always.
