Every year, I get a nice gift from DC Comics, a great organization I've been associated with for decades. The gift is often very useful and practical, such as a portfolio, jacket, or clock decorated with the DC logo. This year, I received a 2GB flash drive, which I am thankful for, since a digital artist can never have too much storage! As a bonus, DC included "twelve desktop wallpapers selected from DC's superb Holiday portfolio." The first image I saw was the one presented here.
I love it when people send me my own artwork as a gift. It happens more often than you'd think. I guess everyone knows I'm my own biggest fan. The little girl in this picture is my niece, Elizabeth, which is why there's an "E" on her Xmas stocking. She's grown now. The red boots coming down the chimney belong to the Flash, which was revealed inside the Christmas card this drawing was originally done for.
Other pictures on the flash drive include pictures by Mort Drucker, Bruce Timm, Jeff Smith, and Alex Ross, so it is all pretty cool to look at. Thanks, DC! I didn't get you anything!
