Christmas Cards

Many animators like to send out Christmas cards, because they can draw them themselves.
Lounsbery, Kimball, Marc Davis, Frank and Ollie, they all sent out drawn holiday greetings over the years. Not Milt Kahl. 
Remember, he said: I only draw when I have to.
In the early 1980ies I sent Milt this card with a self caricature to wish him and his wife Julie Happy Holidays.
Julie told me later, Milt doesn't do Christmas cards, but she had asked him to send me one in return.
I treasure this card. Milt picked this store bought card with a graphic image of Santa, and the open invitation to see him and Julie is very special to me!!
