Happy November everybody! When I feel that nip in the air, my imagination is always sparked anew. It may be early in the season for some, but in my house the spirit of the holidays is ever present. So here it is...SANTA PROPAGANDA POSTER 2021!! This is my eleventh addition to the series, and I'm very proud it! In fact, this year's process helped me make a decision - I think I'll be making these for the rest of my life ☺. No one ever asked me to make these things, but I've been compelled to make a new one each year for OVER A DECADE! It's about more than just the weird design challenge of making a inherently frightening and persuasive piece of marketing into something magical and hopeful. These posters are my attempt at spreading a piece of my joy with all of you. If my art puts even a little smile on someone's face, or sets off even a spark of inspiration, then the work is well worth the effort. So, Happy Holidays my friends! May your hearts be filled with light ❤
Inspired by J. C. Leyendecker's World War I Boy Scout Poster (1918).
*We'll be taking orders for Santa Propaganda Posters on November 15th!

To celebrate #NationalAdoptionMonth, The Parker Family and #BelieveInWonder were featured as "Voices of Adoption." We are proud to be advocates for foster/adopt families, and to champion the cause. Every child deserves a forever home. The system isn't perfect, and there is a lot of work to be done, but as long as there are dedicated and caring families willing to tough through this bumpy road then every child can have the chance at a nurturing home.
