It’s Christmas in Leiden…

Andrew Meehan Christmas card 2011

 

Ok, not quite. It's not even Thanksgiving yet, but I've managed to find some inspiration in my new home and finish my Christmas card early this year.

As usual, it's inspired by the great Art Deco racing posters of Geo Ham (and others) and this year features a 1933 Bugatti Type 59 Grand Prix racing along the canals of old Leiden.

Follow my Christmas card progress!

So last year I dropped the ball on my Christmas card. It was the first time in years that I didn't produce something worthy of public consumption and it's been buggin me ever since.

This year will be different.

I've started early and I'm feeling good about it. Already have the setting and the car picked out and sketching has begun in earnest. I'm going to try to keep updating this blog with snippets of my work progress until the final card is ready in early December.

As you can see from the sketches, I've chosen a 1955 Jaguar D-type longnose (Le Mans winner) as the car. The location will be unveiled in my next post.

Stop back often for updates!
