A Pink and Green Christmas {illustration}

Here is a holiday cover I illustrated for December Nights - a festival at Balboa Park in San Diego that happens every year. I've only been once, but it its spectacular. It was fun trying out a folk art style for this one. I played with the colors way too much, but I like the pink and green we ended up with.

I tried to work the pink and green theme into this Kermit and the Grinch cover, but we decided on the red and lime-green one because the green is more natural to the characters.  I still think the pink one has more edge. The lipstick kiss was provided by one our our editors - thanks MP!
