My parent's asked me to illustrate & animate their 2011 Christmas eCard. In order to come up with a concept, I started listening to some Christmas music. Out of several options, I finally decided on "The Fruitcake Song" by Mannheim Steamroller. It was upbeat and I could really visualize some whimsical, Dr. Seuss inspired, classic artwork. Now, their actual eCard read, "Merry Christmas from Jim & Ginny" but, for my portfolio version, I changed it to read the song title and artist.
