As usual I drew parts of this onto real paper with a real pencil. After copying it to my laptop I used CorelDraw and Corel Photopaint to do the layout, sizing etc. and once I had done that I drew most of the background in by using my pen-tablet and all the fantastic facilities of Corel Photopaint.
When you see this picture think that I am wishing you a happy Christmas and New Year. If you prefer to forget the Christmas idea, I can still wish you all the best for the future!
Happy and successfull designing!!
