A very merry pop art Christmas

Christmas is coming up and I’m hard at work making plans.

This year, my kid decided that she didn’t want to take Christmas photos so what’s a mom to do?

I hired a professional illustrator to create our Christmas card.

My only instructions were to make it look like pop art.

That’s right, I wanted a Lichtenstein-esque Christmas card.

And that’s exactly what I got from the artist (the talented Michael Samuel):

It’s cartoon meets pop art meets graphic novel.

And I love it.

I was so inspired by the card, that I even had the back side designed by the same artist:

The resulting card is spectacular.

I bought matching green envelopes with the polka dot/tree inserts to keep with the theme.

No one likes a plain white envelope, right?

Of course not.

I will be sending out approximately 90 Christmas cards this year to family and friends.

I can’t wait for the reactions to come rolling in!
