pearce family holiday drawings: you’ll shoot your eye out!

Here’s this year’s Pearce family holiday drawing; you may like to click here and see the drawings from years’ past. This year, I’m paying homage to the 1984 classic A Christmas Story. The fun thing about this sketch is that Ellen and I turned it into our Christmas card this year!

We quibbled over the text inside the card. I wanted to use the original tag line from the movie and have it read, “Hope you have an Original, Traditional, One-Hundred-Percent, Red-Blooded, Two-Fisted, All-American Christmas!”

Ellen balked at that… and she was probably right to. Not many Christmas cards use the words “blood” and “fist” in any form, and the tagline for the movie isn’t universally known. It was probably too “inside baseball” for our purposes. Instead we went with a more friendly “Hope your Christmas Story this year is terrific!”

If you’re on the list, you’ll be getting one of these in the next few weeks!
