before we had a computer. before we had a printer. each Christmas card was hand drawn.
then along came the era of kinkos & color copies
letters cut from our ‘rebeat’ tabloid
letters cut from repurposed cardboard box scraps
made from cardboard and construction paper scraps
our technology progresses & we begin sending scans of an original to apple for cards
always liked this prismacolor, so it was sent to apple as our Christmas card one year
if inspiration did not come in time, we sent new year’s cards instead
love this tree. it made a cool card.
late 80’s we got a hand-me-down pc, our 1st, & one of those printers that have punched holes along the sides of a paper roll. nic made illustrations in a primitive word processing program for a book i wrote & typed, ‘paperback band,’ using that pc and that punched paper. this is one of his digitized drawings. it was our card last year (2012).
