Even as an adult, I still get giddy with excitment as Christmas draws near. Much of my inspiration comes from those wonderful stop-action holiday specials ("Rudolph, "A Year Without a Santa Claus) that truly sparked my imagination as a child and even still today! I love traditional Christmas imagery, but I like to give my characters a bit of an "edge": grumpy reindeer, mischevious snowmen, all help to make the holidays a bit more fun!
