Horace, Abigail & Lola holiday card (2016)

Horace, Abigail & Lola holiday card

Inspiration

My partner’s alter-ego, Horace the Tortoise, returned for the first time since his creation to be part of our 2016 holiday e-card. He was joined by my newly created alter-ego, Abigail Mouse, as well as our dog, Lola.

The illustration has many little visual cues that represented memories and events from 2016—something that I hope to make a tradition for our holiday cards going forward.

The warm reaction we received to this card, as well as our increasing fondness for these characters, became the tipping point for the creation of our webcomic, Horace & Abigail.
