Thank You to our friend Ray L. in the UK who sent us this great cover to the British

magazine Private Eye. He told us that this was done when everyone was feeling the
effects of the financial crash at that time.
It made me think - You know things are bad when a snowman is thinking of ending it all...

Ray's great painting (based on an historical postcard) of Santa Clause running
over a snowman can be found in the color insert section of the
History of the Snowman book. More of Ray Lang's interesting work can be seen at
his website www.yessy.com/artgallery
