O'Connell Ye Faithful


For those of you you were wondering, here are the wisemen in color. It was the first draft once I got my illustration scanned and redrawn in Illustrator but I thought that things were getting too busy. Plus, the monochromatic palette gives it a much more nostalic feel.

Another color change and the right is the final useage… our Christmas card. I am burning CDs to give to our friends and family. Old timey holiday favorites… Elvis Presely, Doris Day, Frank Sinatra, Dean Marting, Eartha Kitt and Jimmy Durante to name a few.

I love them all! It's hard to choose. You know how us women are. The monochromatic one really sticks out to me and you know I'm a retro chick so I'm loving this! Great work Mocando. Excellent!!
