Merry Xmas Jen Ferguson

The past 3-4 years, me and Jen Ferguson make each other original art for Xmas. I never know what she's going to make me and I never know what I'm going to make her. Staring at a blank piece of watercolor paper the night before Xmas Eve can be daunting (especially since I can't paint to save my life). I'm used to having an initial idea or working from a script or layout and once a year I dive head first into the thrill of making something from nothing. I can never vouch for its artistic and/or conceptual merit but it's always stream-of-consciousness and a worthwhile challenge.
