Elves working finish



I was reminded of a Album cover for Fred Waring's Twas the Night Before Cristmas that my family grew up with (Album dates back to 1955) The illustration was by Norman Rockwell featuring Santa and some elves hiding behind the chair in which two children have fallen asleep. I wanted the Elves to be very small -- almost GI Joe size in comparison. (Cover image can be found on ebay)

There's more holiday opportunities coming next week. Several seasonal stage productions will be jockeying for attention next week so stay tuned.
