It’s been about 5 years now that Focus on the Family has been recycling my christmas email illustration I did for their Magazine subscription department. Here’s the original version:
Pretty nice huh? Rustic, traditional, warming… fun too. I was inspired by a “children’s storybook” Night Before Christmas sorta thing.
But look at what they did with it this year, forcing it into a template and a color scheme that does NOTHING for the design.
C’mon guys! Just call me up and I’d be happy to do a new one for you!
It always hurts as an illustrator to see your beautiful work, well, trampled upon so to speak… =(
