Christmas dragon

Christmas dragon

We’re back from Lisboa, after a wonderful family holiday. Good food and adventures were involved, as well as what might be a new tradition: watching scary movies on Christmas Eve. (We watched the remake of The Thing. Brrr.)

Thank you for all of your well wishes, and I hope your holiday was one to remember! Just to make sure it doesn’t fade away too quickly, here is my nomination for the perfect winter wallpaper. I love the idea of a dragon pulling Santa’s sleigh — it changes the whole story, doesn’t it? It also might explain all the lumps of coal that Santa leaves for the badly behaved children.

For the artists and geeks among you, the creator of this wallpaper put together a timelapse of the drawing process. It’s a virtuoso performance on Adobe Photoshop, accompanied by an acoustic guitar version of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”

Solstice and Christmas might be over, but that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to enjoy the season.

    As a fan of Anne McCaffreys Pern novels, I could almost call this a Pernese Christmas. ^_^

    Rather poignant too since Ms. McCaffrey passed away in November.

    Nice one 🙂
    Another dragon to your collection 😉

    “It also might explain all the lumps of coal that Santa leaves for the badly behaved children”
    Do you mean what I think you’re considering by that? lol

    Then again, “amorphous carbon with various organic and some inorganic compounds” could likely apply to it.

    I wonder what the next dragon will be about… :o)
