Jeff Seiler's Xmas Cards

(Click image to enlarge)
(via email, 24 February 2015)
Okay, Tim. Explanation:  Every year, I send a Christmas card to Dave and usually get something nice back. This past year, I sent both a Christmas and Hannukah card. This is what I got back, now framed. Original art from an unspecified panel and page from Strange Death Of Alex Raymond.

Just to add, if you look closely at the word balloon, you can see a faint shadow that gives away that the lettering is cut and pasted (well, taped) to fit the inked balloon. And, I checked: He really did use a bit of masking tape folded over to stick the cut-out lettering to the artboard.

Oh, and, I suppose this could be used or unused art from either glamourpuss or SDOAR. Dunno. Just happy to have gotten it. BTW, the piece of artboard measures about 8 3/4" X 6 1/4", while the finished panel measures 6 1/4" X 5 3/8". Hard to tell from the photo.
