Merry Christmas! I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas weekend full of love and joy. Here is a silly drawing of a snowman I doodled because I’m too lazy to draw Santa Claus. Next year I’ll be better prepared and make a real Christmas card like a real artist. Until then… Enjoy some hot chocolate and have a wonderful day.
