Christmas Bunnies #7

Every year, Ty complains about all the penguins he sees featured around Christmas time:  on cards, wrapping paper, etc. Some variation on, “There are no penguins at the North Pole!” (Yeah, I know…there’s no guy in red, either.  Shh–don’t tell him that.) So, 2007, he made his complaints into art.

…and a Christmas Eve Day morning gift

from Ty the Guy.

Christmas Bunnies #6

Click on card for a slightly larger image…

This is a special card, as it’s the first year Jessica featured as part of family images–she and Kellam had been dating for almost four years, but that year they had moved in together, so we gained a daughter-in-law and the cards get more crowded….

a little pre-Christmas gift from Ty…

“Coal…coal for all of you.  Bwah-hah-ha,” says Ty the Guy.

Christmas Bunnies #5

Okay–he’s too busy to blog, but whilst scanning artwork he quickly threw in an old Christmas card to add in here.

So, herewith…Christmas 1992

This one is from the olden days, when Ty didn’t have a computer.  Well, he did…but it only had a basic word processing program and he only knew how to turn it on.

This was done “by hand”.  Some of you might be old enough to remember a world before computers, the worldwide web (I’m having flashbacks to the early days of our Compuserve account, when we literally couldn’t figure out how to do anything but email).  That’s real, live hand-lettering there.

Christmas Bunnies #4

Ty finished his work and got it out the door…but now he’s got the list of “could you add a drawing of this? could you change this?” and he’s too busy for sleep, food or rock’n’roll.  So, it’s still little ol’ me, going through his files…

(I’m thinking of saying something slanderous about someone…maybe his mother, just to freak him out and get him to come running to the computer.  Wait–is it slander or libel on the internet?*)

Hey–I remember this one!  I flatted this for Ty, and when he finished it, he used it as a colouring lesson for me…imagine how much I retained in the midst of the Christmas rush (what with the many children and cats running around).

*Ty says, “Libel.”  But it’s the internet…it’s not really published, right?  Wouldn’t it be slander?  Oh, wait–there was that lawsuit with the model

Christmas Bunnies #3

Christmas 2002…some years are a bit more harried and stressed than others, and Ty forgets that the month of December ends in a whole holiday season kind of thing.  I’m supposed to be his “office manager” so at some point in the morning, we have a brief moment where I check in and find out what work he’s doing, what’s done, who I have to email and call, and what’s going out.  More than one December has involved some version of, “Honey, you can’t FedEx then…it’s Christmas Day.”  Then follows an inordinate amount of swearing…

I’m only having vague memories of December 2002 at this point, but sometimes you can tell from the card that Ty hit a point where it was, “Oh, yeah–Christmas.”

Christmas Bunny #2

A couple of years ago, Ty watched me struggling to wrap gifts for everyone, chopping up bits of paper to use as tags.  An hour later, he turned up with a design, and different colour choices for me to approve!  They’ve since become our standard gift tags…

Not bad for a Grinch.

Christmas Bunnies

Ty will tell anyone who will listen that he doesn’t get the point of Christmas and the only worthwhile holiday is Hallowe’en.

He discovered that fatherhood meant that Hallowe’en became more fun for him…

but that he had to pay attention to that Christmas thing whether he liked it or not.

Ty finds different levels of inspiration at Christmas time…he tries to do a bunny funny card every year, but it all depends on how the spirit moves him.  So, this week, I’ll try and post a bunny each day from past celebrations…(eventually, Ty will decide I’ve picked the wrong ones or I’m not being amusing and he’ll turn up to dispense witticisms!).
