Heya Kids. Thought we'd illustrate a common theme of the holiday season; the middle-aged man about town out doing his last-minute shopping.

...so, after the vivacious fellow shopper thinks better of things and jumps into a passing cab, our man looks skyward to fate as if to say, "come on, it's Christmas. Haven't you got anything better to do?"...

Hello, Mr. Macalla. I've used this stock image of yours while creating Fourscore by Puppetcancer Thank you once again. (Note: I know you're not fat, but this character was overweight in my mind's eye long before I put pencil to paper.)

I'm sorry, it's a character in a book- Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchet. He's an angel and part time rare books dealer who's rather fond of tartan. :) This fit my mental image of him very well.

Wow, I really wish this photo had been around when I was trying to draw Mr Tumnus for my sister.
