Cards of Christmas Past

Allen Spetnagel, "Merry Christmas, 2017"

These are illustrations I created for personal Christmas cards in years past.  Above, a car hauls its Christmas tree around I-285, the interstate highway loop around Atlanta.  Below is a depiction I drew of Caga Tio, the Catalan Yule Log that people traditionally hit until it poops candy.

Game Over!!!

These paintings are about the fear of losing or messing-up something that is, in reality, trivial.
