favorite of 2009


my parents asked me to design their holiday card this year for the first time. they had recently gotten an old '51 chevy (??) delivered to their "back 40" as they like to call it. it's really their wildflower garden that they've spent the last few years working on. they really wanted to use a photo of the truck on their christmas card but didn't know what to say. i liked the idea because it's not your typical holiday card. she asked me to come up with something funny. after hemming & hawing for awhile, this is what i came up with:

mom & dad christmas 2009

i wasn't sure what they would think. i know my parents can laugh at themselves, but i wasn't really sure if this is what they wanted their christmas cards to say. my mom called when she got the proof and said it was "freaking hilarious". now, if you know anything about my mom, you know that's a HUGE statement. she's not the type to get worked up about things AT. ALL.

so here it is. my favorite design for 2009. unexpected. funny.
