This is one of my favorite holiday cards, which I created in 2006, a full 10 years ago. So much water has flowed under my bridge since then. And, now, with Trump dumping his dreadfulness all over the nation, this card seems particularly appropriate as we wander from a crazy 2016 into a potentially crazier 2017. Still, I wish all my Drawger friends a great New Year, wishing you all good health, good friendships and good beer!
Probably most Drawgerites are familiar with my Death at the Circus drawings. God knows I have posted enough of them to choke an elephant. As I write on my Vimeo page, I asked a couple of talented artists (who are also my dear friends) to help me create a video featuring the drawings. As it turned out, they didn't just help out, they created the video for me. Composer, Randy Courts created the score, Piers Boyce created the video using my drawings and I just hung around and watched the magic unfold. They brought motion to my circus, for which I am ever grateful. I hope you enjoy our collaboration. -Elwood
