The Soft Glow of Electric Sex by DanSchoening The Soft Glow of Electric Sex by DanSchoening
The Old Man: It's a Major Award!
Swede: Shucks, I wouldn't know that. It looks like a lamp.
The Old Man: It is a lamp, you nincompoop. It's a Major Award. I won it!
Swede: Damn, hell, you say won it?
The Old Man: Yeah, mind power, Swede; mind power.
Ralphie (Adult VO):The entire neighborhood was turned on.
The Old Man: Oh, you should see what it looks like from out here!
Ralphie (Adult VO): It could be seen up and down Cleveland St. The symbol of the Old Man's victory.

This years "A Christmas Story" tribute! Hope it helps get you into the spirit of good will towards others. Something that should be all year long really.

Also if you are a big fan of the movie, I highly recommend checking out the Christmas Story House site here; [link] It's an awesome museum, and they have wicked goods in the gift shop.

Cheers!

Dapper

I feel like I need this as a print.  I live in the area where the book of this was set, this is a tradition around these parts every Christmas.  Excellent work.

I love the movie called "A Christmas Story" & every Christmas I have got to see this wonderful movie at least once or else it just doesn't feel like Christmas to me.You did an amazing job on this. I just love the detail in it, except I hope you don't mind me asking, what did you do to make it look like the leg lamp actually glows? Do you use a wacom?
