Christmas (shopping)

This is a Christmas themed drawing I did about 4 years ago. I have to admit, the excessive commercialism of Christmas gives me something of an empty feeling every year. That's not to say I don't like Christmas -- I really like the opportunity to see family and friends over the holidays, but the overwhelming emphasis on consumption and christmas shopping and all the advertisments and marketing during the holidays leaves me a bit cold.

As for the drawing, it was done in gouache and ink on water-colour paper and you can see how much I liked drawing big-headed people back then (and still do!).
