Okay, imagine you're the illustrator.
You get an email from your editor a month before your illustration is to run in a magazine.
Your team has just fired their General Manager and hired Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer, but other than that you're not really sure about anything.
"Make the illustration about the holidays and how excited we are about the Theo and Jed and Jason", the editor asks.
Actually, I love these kinds of problems, even if they're as difficult as this one.
So if you subscribe to "Vine Line", you've already seen this illustration.
If not, there it is.
And I could spend an hour writing about my favorite Holiday cocktails, but once again it's traveling time and I've got no time.
I heard John Grabow got picked up by the Dodgers.
Enjoy him, west coasters - he's awesome!
And BTW, I'm planning on cornish game hens and a prime rib all on the same smoky grill for Christmas dinner.
That'll take a couple hours at least.
What cocktail shall I have out in the back yard when it's (I imagine) freezing out?
Why, that would be a gin martini of course.
Up with a twist.
