Xmas Party 1992


Presumably in a fit of nostalgia, after two years of pushing the envelope with regards to style for the annual xmas party invite, I went back to the original style of black and white printed on red astrobrite paper. These annual xmas party invites (which ran from 1984-1995) were thought lost, until I discovered a stash of them in my father’s keepsake drawer in 2014 when he passed away.

It is interesting, since so much of my work from these early years has either been lost or destroyed, to go back and see the evolution of my style based on these personal pieces. This is very much in the style of the spot illustrations I was doing for Christianity Today around this time.
