Happy Holidays

The Word Magazine (December 2009): Happy Holidays

…to everyone who’s writing and reading at Drawger.I met a lot of nice people this year through blogging here. 
I wanted to make a holiday image just for Drawger, but between last minutes deadlines (just sent off the last job before Christmas) and personal matters, I ended up having to pick the one that’s most appropriate.

It is for The Word, a British music magazine I have been working with every month on their supplement compilation CD cover for about two and half years. So, thank you and Merry Christmas to Jonathan, Mark, Mike, Jerry and all the nice people at The Word.

New York City will be quiet for the next few days. A nice time of the year.

Have a wonderful holiday season.
