FaLaLaLaLa.com is proud to present the 2006 ADVENTure In Carols.
My oh-so-talented friend Ward Jenkins put together this year’s cover and I think it’s great. He really captured that sense of wonder that kids feel at Christmas (and some of us old folks do too).
I know Ward through various internet associations, most notably the Flickr Retro Kid group, where folks share their love of illustration for kids from the 50’s and 60’s. You can, of course, see this inspiration on display in Ward’s cover. I don’t know if it’s meant to be a portrait of his own talented daughter Ava, but I’m sure she (and her little brother) provided inspiration for the look of wonder on this girl’s face.
I’m sure you join me in thanking Ward for sharing his talents with the FaLaLaLaLa family!
