conglomerate entity 1 (in Heidi's book)
Well, this started out as a collab using Ellen's Santa, but started going very badly. I originally attempted some kind of stained-glass Santa-thing, but it was looking pretty sad, so I just started going all stream-of-conscious and I got this. I guess I wasn't feelin' the holiday vibe anymore, being this was started so long after Christmas. So, I guess you can call it a collaboration (or not), since I originally based my lines on Ellen's drawing (there's a Santa in there somewhere). That's the great thing about art sometimes - you don't always know what you'll get - you don't always stick with the original idea, or have a plan even. I don't like how some folks think someone who is creative or is skilled in art can simply, magically whip up a work simply because they are "talented". The fact is, we all have the ability - we are all creative and artistic, however some of us don't use it and therefore lose it. It's all about work and making decisions (and hopefully fun).
