In the past few weeks, I have drawn some musical-themed Christmas cards for some of my friends. Christmas Eve is the big gift-giving day in Finland, so I've scheduled them to be published today...

Here's the first one, featuring Henry Jekyll and John Utterson from the Finnish production of Jekyll & Hyde the musical. Learning to dance seems to be a bit difficult for my favourite mad scientist... The friend I drew this for also saw some romantic undertones in between these two when he saw the musical live – so I hope he likes the drawing!

I think I've only seen one video with the Korean cast... Are there any good clips or songs available on Youtube, I'd be curious to see more? As for the Finnish cast, there are only a couple of clips available... Here's audio of our Facade (or "Naamio"):…
