"A Beauty and the Beast Christmas" (batbxmas.gif, 1020x475x2, 24741 bytes) is the 29th in a continuing series of fine Disney fanart drawings by Bob Ito <ito@[...]> and the 8th in the so-called "Bucketland Cards" series of handmade greeting cards, "when you're too cheap to buy a card". :-)
One popular type of Christmas card that you've probably seen is the "photo" card, where a couple would turn a photo of themselves into a greeting card and mail it to all their friends and relatives. Well, as you can see here, Belle and the Beast must've decided to do that when they were outside lobbing snowballs at each other during "Something There", but they were having so much fun doing so that the Enchanted Objects had to remind them of it!
This is a handmade Christmas card that Bob made and sent out to his Christmas card list. It is VERY good, even for Bob, who is quite an accomplished artist and has been planning this card since the PREVIOUS Christmas...The card came as a foldout, and is divided into three sections:
left: front of card center: inside foldout right: "inside" of card
As with all "Bucketland Cards", all personal messages have been deleted from the image.
