    Never too old to believe in Santa!

    Roy! He’s been there before.

    Trust me, he knows the way.

    Is Roy having fun with anamorphosis?

    Just a convenient device for a strip that’s always too close to deadline. yet it still took a good while to distort the lights to be anywhere near the angle to fit on the roof. John didn’t make it clear what he had in mind in this one- just that Roy was dong something complex for Santa to follow. From there I had to figure out what it might be.

    So do you keep a reference folder so that if you need the outside the house again, you have some idea what it looked like before or is it from scratch each time?

    It is always sad when a child no longer believes in Santa. Let him believe as long as possible.

    Somewhere between adolescence and Roy, I presume? Filtering truth based on experience is just a natural part of growing up.

    Excellent work Thomas, has a good feel to the artwork. Fools the eye into thinking it is actually a light source playing across a flat horizontal surface at an angle.

    Well we never showed it from that angle before. I have a permanent background of Roy and Kathy’s den I re-use. But this was a new drawing. We never discussed what kind of house or neighborhood they live in, but John’s never said “Oh that isn’t it” yet.

    I don’t even know what state the characters live in. John might think it’s upstate NY where he lives, but I don’t know.

    The characters live in “every town” use.

    At least Roy didn’t do “The Grizzwald House”. ☺
